Since the onset of the global pandemic, ILWS researchers have been on the front foot when it comes to COVID research. To date, there have been 59 research outputs produced by Institute members, covering an assortment of topics related to the pandemic, at both an international and national level. The scope of this research extends from the social sciences to mathematical modelling and projecting future transmission of the virus, thus providing much-needed insight into the impact of COVID-19. Whether it be regarding the mental health of our front line workers or the future implications for industry and economy, ILWS researchers have once again demonstrated their engagement in high quality, impactful research.
One ILWS member, Associate professor Dirk Spenneman has alone authored 15 papers (13 of which he is first author) and 2 ILWS reports.
