Binod Pant completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD), where his research focused on the intersection of mathematics and biology. His work involved utilizing mathematical theory, data analytics, and computational methods to gain insight into the transmission dynamics and control of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases of public health importance. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Pant's research addressed several critical areas, including the impact of heterogeneity on herd immunity threshold, the impact of human behavior on disease transmission, and the significance of using wastewater surveillance data to predict case and hospitalization. Other that modeling the spread of COVID-19, Dr. Pant's is involved in various ongoing projects related to vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue.  He enjoys working in a collaborative environment and has mentored various undergraduate and graduate students.
