7 PM ET "Using Data to Optimize the Rules of the National Football League"
Each offseason, the National Football League considers a bevy of rules proposals based on factors such as competitiveness, officiating, and health and safety. Using case studies from recent seasons, we explore how the league’s Football Data and Analytics team has supplemented these discussions using tools from statistics and mathematics.

7 PM ET "How Can We Use Mathematics to Model Human Behavior?"
The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the important role human behavior plays in the spread of infectious diseases and how individual decision-making can have an effect at the aggregate level. In this talk, I will discuss how epidemiological models can integrate emergent behavioral dynamics and their impact on disease spread.
