Planetary Health: Investigating the Intersections of Environmental and Public Health

My presentation will focus on the following two planetary health research areas: 1) modeling the impact of terrestrial and marine wildlife declines in affecting global human food security; and 2) developing a climate-smart health surveillance system that will integrate environmental, climate, agricultural, and health monitoring data to understand the underlying causes of ill health and how to predict them in the future. These two research areas beg for collaboration across...

Security Games: Quasi-Regular Sequences, and a New Version of TSP

[joint work with Leonard J. Schulman and Omer Tamuz (SODA 2018) and with Mark Klein (submitted)]

In security games, a defender commits to a mixed strategy for protecting a set of n targets of values v_i; an attacker, knowing the defender's strategy, chooses which target to attack and for how long. We study a natural version in which the attacker's utility grows linearly with the time he spends at the target, but drops to 0 if he is caught. The defender's goal is to minimize the...
