Benjamin Steinegger speaks about Covid-19


Benjamin Steinegger gave a presentation on the epidemiological modelling of COVID-19 on 11 January 2021 as part of an online forum of the Institute "Cultures of the Alps"

Benjamin Steinegger reported on his everyday life as a natural scientist in times of the pandemic: how he suddenly and unexpectedly went from being a researcher to an expert and can hardly do his actual work any more because of all the enquiries. In addition to questions about the light and dark sides of the expert function, Steinegger also discussed questions about the future of the pandemic in an audience discussion. Raised in Flüelen, UR, Benjamin Steinegger is currently doing his doctorate at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona, Spain. In his work, he is particularly concerned with the spread of diseases within a population.
