Some questions Elina Bryngemark tries to answer with her research: 

  • How do people’s behavioral reactions influence the evolution of an infectious disease outbreak through feedbacks on pathogen spread? Does variation of pathogen risk across time and space affect self-protective behavior?
  • How are people’s behaviors during an infectious disease outbreak moderated by the pronounced uncertainties and frequent policy changes that are characteristic of novel epidemics?
