Associate Professor in Epidemiology Mattia Prosperi, MEng, PhD, recently received a Southeastern Conference (SEC) Visiting Faculty Travel Grant from the Office of the Provost. The SEC Faculty Travel program is run through the SECU, the academic initiative of the SEC. The program offers faculty members from each SEC university the opportunity to travel to other SEC universities to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, and conduct research. Dr. Prosperi will be traveling to Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, to collaborate with Dr. Bradley Malin, Vanderbilt’s Vice Chair for Research Affairs. While in Nashville, Dr. Prosperi will present in the Vanderbilt Informatics Seminar on his work in the areas of big data science and biomedical modeling. Congratulations to Dr. Prosperi for this opportunity to showcase his cutting-edge work in data science and epi-informatics. We hope there will be more opportunities for collaboration with other SEC universities in the future.
