Hacking vulnerable people as massive particles

Target location: any, US

Target audience: The target audience for the project deliverable, which is software, are resources planners at local government level and hospitals, such as the Delaware partners we are currently working with; but since the project will be produced in a hackathon, the direct audience of the project will be the hackathon participants: astrophysicists and epidemiologists that wish to volunteer their work to find solutions to COVID-19 related problems

The project aims to organize an epidemiologists-astronomers hackathon to directly help the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically to include appropriate population characteristics in epidemiological models, so that the model does not only take into account the disease characteristics, but also the local and specific medical and behavioral characteristic of the population.
