Publications

  1. Bansal S, Meyers L. The impact of past epidemics on future disease dynamics. J Theor Biol. 2012;309:176-84 pubmed publisher
    ..By restructuring the epidemiologically active portion of their host population, such diseases limit the potential of future outbreaks. We speculate that these dynamics can result in evolutionary pressure to increase infectiousness. ..
  2. Bansal S, Pourbohloul B, Hupert N, Grenfell B, Meyers L. The shifting demographic landscape of pandemic influenza. PLoS ONE. 2010;5:e9360 pubmed publisher
    ..These results have significant implications for the allocation of public health resources for H1N1/09 and future influenza pandemics. ..
  3. Bansal S, Khandelwal S, Meyers L. Exploring biological network structure with clustered random networks. BMC Bioinformatics. 2009;10:405 pubmed publisher
    ..This process is a key step in unraveling the functional consequences of the structural properties of empirical biological systems and uncovering the mechanisms that drive these systems. ..
  4. Bansal S, Read J, Pourbohloul B, Meyers L. The dynamic nature of contact networks in infectious disease epidemiology. J Biol Dyn. 2010;4:478-89 pubmed publisher
    ..In this article, we review some recent data-driven and process-driven approaches that capture the dynamics of human contact, and discuss future challenges for the field...
  5. Eames K, Bansal S, Frost S, Riley S. Six challenges in measuring contact networks for use in modelling. Epidemics. 2015;10:72-7 pubmed publisher
    ..Finally, we consider the privacy and ethical issues surrounding the collection of contact network data. ..
