Leigh McCue-Weil, Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering, is working with researchers at the Northeast Center for Occupational Health and Safety (NEC) to develop a computationally efficient model of viral spread that can be utilized to better understand the effectiveness of disease spread mitigation strategies for H-2A farm workers living in employee housing.
McCue-Weil received $15,000 from the Centers for Disease Control for this work. Funding began in April 2020 and will end in late August 2020.
