COVID-19 Response Group at Centre for Networked Intelligence, IISc. March, 2020 -- March, 2022
City Scale Agent-Based Simulator (With TIFR, Mumbai)
Co-wrote Python wrappers and calibration scripts for the simulator. Ran the calibrations in a supercomputing facility at IISc. This was used for running epidemic simulation to predict disease progression at city scale.
Analysis of mobility patterns to understand travel behavior at large scale using various mobility data sources like Google, Facebook, etc.
Designed a local database to store these large datasets (Millions of rows and 10s of GBs in size) and provided access to the rest of the group for ease of information retrieval and computations.
Contributed insights from the mobility data. These served as a proxy of interaction rates among communities and/or between different administrative regions.
Softwares: Python, PostgreSQL with PostGIS extension
Workplace Readiness Indicator
Designed the score computing algorithm that provides not only a quantitative readiness score but also suggestions on measures to improve the safety of office space so that they could relaunch economic activities in a safe manner.
Designed the website and deployed it on an AWS instance.
Developed interactive maps that visualises transport routes from the sample collection centres to the testing labs in Karnataka state. The routes are colour coded based on the number of sample travelling on that route.
Deployed both of these tools on the websites, hosted on AWS instances.
