Meet the Team
Dr. Dan Yamin
Head of Lab
Dr. Yamin (PhD) is a faculty member at the department of Industrial Engineering at Tel Aviv University, and a former faculty member in the Center of Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis, in the school of public health at Yale University. Dr. Yamin develops novel infectious disease models by integrating to his research various topics including Applied Probability, Dynamic Modeling, Markov Modeling, Game Theory and Network Science. He published 17 scientific papers in top ranking multidisciplinary- and General Medicine- journals, and received four research prizes awards and three teaching prizes awards. Dr. Yamin’s studies contributed to impact health policy against influenza in Israel, offered novel strategies to eliminate Ebola in the recent outbreak that were implemented in Liberia, and recently developed a model offering new vaccination strategies against Respiratory Scenically Virus (RSV) that is currently being examined by world leading vaccination companies. Dr. Yamin supervised 14 graduate students, and consulted to two leading vaccination companies, Sanofi Pasteur MSD and Merck, on infectious disease modeling.
Matan Yechezkel is an Industrial Engineering and Management PhD student at Tel Aviv University. Matan is also a teaching assistant for stochastic models in Operations Research. In addition, Matan has qualified for the Dean’s List for his achievements in his first, second and third years of his bachelor’s degree studies. Matan research focuses on using infectious disease modeling for understanding the spread of morbidity, morbidity predictions, and optimizing policies.
Ilan Vasilevsky is Industrial Engineering and Management M. Bs student at Tel Aviv University. He focuses his research on applying data science for prediction of changes in people’s health condition.
Yotam Deri is a M.Sc. student in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Tel Aviv University. The main purpose of his research as a part of his dissertation, is to outline a policy for decision makers to deal with viral diseases such as Covid-19. In this work, data are modeled, collected and analyzed into insights and conclusions that can be implemented in the real life’like we had experienced a year ago
In addition, he works as a junior faculty member on behalf of the University
Efrat Levy is a M.Sc student in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Tel Aviv University. As part of her research she collects and analyzes data for the development of algorithms that can be used for the well-being of patients and the entire health system.
In addition, Efrat works as a junior faculty member on behalf of the university.
Tomer Brandes is an M.Sc student in applied mathematics, with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Bar Ilan University.
He has experience in data analysis, software development, and mathematical modeling.
His research is focused on developing and analyzing innovative mathematical models for vaccine allocation.the development of innovative mathematical models for the purpose of optimizing immune distribution
Yosi Levi is a PhD student and a teaching assistant for the “Data structures and algorithms” course in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Tel Aviv University. His research focuses on developing algorithms and applied machine learning models for early detection of infectious diseases, using smartwatch, medical records, and smartphone sensory data.
