In this podcast episode, AGYA members Professor Dr. Zeina Hobaika from Lebanon and Dr. Konstantin Klein from Germany discuss lessons learned from plague epidemics in ancient times as well as the benefits of using modern software and 3D simulations to better understand how COVID-19 behaves and how it might react to certain treatments.

Zeina Hobaika is Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Life and Earth Sciences-Biochemistry at Saint Joseph University of Beirut in Lebanon. Konstantin Klein is Lecturer in Ancient History at the University of Bamberg in Germany. In his current research, Konstantin studies the works of the Greek historian Thucydides, including his account of a plague that haunted Athens in the 5th century BC.
