COVID-19 Simulation Models and Other Resources

I am moving the COVID-19 News and Resources section of the Weekly WPI System Dynamics Digest here to reduce the size of the digest and focus on just new/upcoming material in that. [Note: Some of the examples below are not of system dynamics models.]

Hi Everybody,

I am new to the Systems Dynamics Scoiety. I am doing research as part of my PhD that uses a hybrid ‘Community Action Design Research’ to get up close to the phenomenon of crisis or turbulence in a socio-material environment. My research instruments sense and respond to fractal patterns in the built, human and socio-ecological environment. In turn, I use an IS design science and systems thinking lens to monitor and control the enactments of pro-social behavior being generated in response to the turbulence within the environment.

If you would like to chat please let me know.

I thought I would be able to edit the first post…need to rethink how to organize/display/share these links.
