Multiple disease spread model

Spread mechanism of diseases

In my master’s thesis I studied a multiple disease spread model, which self-organize to a state where the disease clusters get fractal shapes. Much additional work can be done on this, or similar, models. What will happen if diseases can be lethal? If parts of the network is vaccinated? If the network is scale free? Or if some diseases are so similar, that cross-immunization becomes relevant?

Suitable for: Bachelor project, Master’s thesis

Main disciplines: Programming (Java), percolation, epidemiology, self-organization.
