Congratulations to Anoshe’s successful thesis defense: “The Reliability of Tweets as a Supplementary Method of Seasonal Influenza Surveillance”

Congratulations to Anoshé Aslam! She successfully defended her thesis  on April 24, 2014. (Master of Public Health). Her thesis title is “The Reliability of Tweets as a Supplementary Method of Seasonal Influenza Surveillance”.

Her Thesis Committee Members are:

  • Dr. Suzanne Lindsay (Chair) (Public Health)
  • Dr. Mike Peddecord (Public Health)
  • Dr. Ming-Hsiang Tsou (Geography).

Short Bio about Dr. Lindsay (Committee Chair): Dr. Lindsay is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology in the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Graduate School of Public Health, and the Executive Director of the Institute for Public Health (IPH).  The mission of the IPH is to bridge the academic resources of SDSU with the considerable resources of the public health practice community to improve the health of our communities. Research comparing information derived from social media to traditional public health surveillance techniques has the potential to improve public health practice by detecting infectious disease outbreaks earlier and improving our ability to respond quickly to emerging threats.

Special Thank to Dr. Lindsay for her great help and contribution to our CDI project and the tweet flu outbreak study!
