BPhil (Hons)

Yuval joined the Malaria Atlas Project in 2023 as a Research Assistant, aimed at supporting the Model Development Team in spatiotemporal modelling of malaria prevalence and incidence. His work includes modelling the relationship between child age and malaria prevalence under different circumstances in sub-Saharan Africa.

Yuval has training in Applied Mathematics, graduating with an Honours degree from UWA in 2022. In his Honours thesis he researched the spread of COVID-19 in Western Australia, using mobility data to infer movement of people and to evaluate the vulnerability of WA towns to an outbreak, as well as estimating the vaccination rates that would have allowed WA to suppress the outbreak.”
