Research Assistant

BPhil (Hons)

Yuval joined the Malaria Atlas Project in October 2023 as a Research Assistant, aimed at supporting the malaria risk stratification team in spatiotemporal modelling of malaria risk prevalence and incidence, under the WHO’s “High Burden to High Impact” initiative.

Yuval has training in Applied Mathematics, graduating with an Honours degree from UWA in 2021. In his Honours thesis he researched the spread of COVID-19 in a sparsely populated state such as Western Australia, using mobility data to infer movement of people and to evaluate the vulnerability of towns to the outbreak, as well as estimating vaccination rates that would have allowed WA to suppress the outbreak.
