Starsim: A new agent-based framework for modelling HIV and STI co-transmission

Dr Robyn Stuart

Event date

Event time
1:00pm - 2:00pm
Event address
In-person & online. Kirby Institute, Seminar Room Level 6, Wallace Wurth Building, Kensington Campus, UNSW Sydney

In this talk, Dr Stuart will discuss her work on Starsim, a tool that is capable of simulating co-transmission of HIV with other sexually transmissible infections, other transmissible diseases (such as tuberculosis), and non-communicable diseases. Starsim can be rapidly adapted to new contexts thanks to its modular structure, array-based computation, parallelisation, and pre-loading of commonly used data.
