Phase 2

  • Building of a spatially explicit Agent Based Model (ABM)
  • Fieldwork research in the 6 sample areas, focusing on society-disease interlinkages in the urban environment, with particular emphasis on the adaptive capacity of communities and stakeholders in these locations.
  • Identification of data from WPs investigations that could be incorporated as urban risk factors in the Agent Based Model.
  • Analysis of the development and use of digital technologies for disease prevention, monitoring and control.

This research is supported by the National Research Foundation, Prime Minister’s Office, Singapore under its Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE) programme.

CREATE is an international collaboratory housing research centres set up by top universities. At CREATE, researchers from diverse disciplines and backgrounds work closely together to perform cutting-edge research in strategic areas of interest, for translation into practical applications leading to positive economic and societal outcomes for Singapore. The interdisciplinary research centres at CREATE focus on four areas of interdisciplinary thematic areas of research, namely human systems, energy systems, environmental systems and urban systems.
