Researchers at the University of Arkansas track behaviors in the age of COVID-19
To learn from the COVID-19 pandemic, Azat Sadyrov, a research assistant at the Behavioral Business Research Lab within the Sam M. Walton College of Business, is teaming up with Samantha Robinson,teaching assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences within the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, to study the behavior of people and how the coronavirus has altered that behavior.
“The fight against the spread of the virus is not only intended to reduce the total number of cases,but also to slow down their rate of increase,” said Sadyrov, a junior majoring in economics at Fulbright College. “Individual behavior is critical to controlling the spread of the virus. How much people listen to recommendations is just as important as actions by governments, if not more.”
