(2012), "A Decision-Theoretic Model of Disease Surveillance and Control and a Prototype Implementation for the Disease Influenza", Data Engineering Workshops (ICDEW), 2012 IEEE 28th International Conference on: 49-54.

This paper first describes a decision-theoretic model of disease surveillance and control. It then describes a prototype system for influenza monitoring based on the model. The decision-theoretic model connects disparate work epidemiological modelling and disease control under a uniform mathematical formulation. We expect that this model will stimulate new avenues of research in both fields.
