I am Hiroaki Murayama, an infectious disease modeller working on mathematical modelling of infectious disease dynamics, epidemiology, and control. I am also a medical student at School of Medicine, International University of Health and Welfare in Japan.

My research interests regard directly transmitted diseases (e.g. COVID-19).
Each of observed cases with a directly transmitted disease are not independent (infector-infectee relationship), which is refered to as dependent happening. This phenomenon leads the need for the description of transmission dynamics regarding mathematical modelling of infectious diseases.
The interests are quantifying natural history, transmission dynamics, and control (non-phermaceutical interventions and vaccine strategy) and developing their methodologies on the application of maximum likelihood estimation, Bayesian inference, robust estimation, stochastic process, data assimilation, network theory, etc. My preferring programming langueges are 1) R and 2) Julia.
