I am building a mathematical Markov chain model to simulate numbers of people infected after being vaccinated by trivalent or quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccines (TIV/QIV) and the cost-effectiveness with different vaccine coverage. The main goal is to provide a powerful vaccine cost-effectiveness website for Taiwan Centers for Disease Control to assess public health policies. The back-end of the website is written in Python Django and Django-Q task scheduler.

I am cooperating with Dr. Tsung-Hsien Yu who provides heathcare and cost effectiveness evaluation knowledge.
