This postdoctoral project aims to support research on Brazil's response to the Covid-19 epidemic. The postdoctoral fellow will be responsible for collecting epidemiological information such as bulletins and predictive models about COVID-19 epidemic in order to inform the narrative of the Brazilian case as well as explore if the decisions taken by the Brazilian government (federal, state and, if possible, municipal) were taken according the World Health Organization guidelines.
