European Liberals for Reform Webinar: “How can we prevent future pandemics?” with Saikat Basu Ph.D.

December 7 @ 20:30 - 21:30 UTC+1


The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has hit us hard in our personal lives: Wearing masks, restrictions in socializing, cancelled events, working from home office, lockdowns. With more than 260 million infections and more than 5 million deaths worldwide, we also need to look into ways of preventing or mitigating future pandemics. Will there be a new normal after the Covid-19 pandemic, will we be able to get our pre-Covid-19 lives back? Are masks and vaccines really a game changer in the pandemic? And how should we deal with people who neglect all responsibility to protect us all?

Prof. Saikat Basu is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at South Dakota State University. His scholarly background is in theoretical and computational fluid mechanics. Basu received his Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics from the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics at Virginia Tech, in 2014. Following that, he had two postdoctoral stints: at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan, followed by the second one at the Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine. Basu’s research program at South Dakota State University is supported by a mix of US National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health grants.
