Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Modeling issues in emergency medical services and their implications
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Laura McLay, UW Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering
Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss issues that affect models for optimally allocating scarce resources for public services (such as fire and emergency medical services) including issues involving performance benchmarks, equity, natural disasters, and the modeling of human servers in queuing models. I will include stories from my research and from the field.
