Data modelling is so important to us all as a tool, as we can act on good information and reliable models. Professor Hendy is an expert in modelling in the current COVID-19 pandemic and his webinar will be of value to anyone who works with data analytics and insights.

Shaun led a team of scientists developing mathematical models for the spread of the virus across the country which he says gives the government “visibility over their decision-making.” There are lessons for local government from the data modelling for COVID and we want to share these.
