Ted Cohen

Associate Professor of Epidemiology (Microbial Diseases) and Associate Professor in the Institution for Social and Policy Studies
Yale School of Public Health

Dr. Cohen is an infectious disease epidemiologist with a primary research focus on tuberculosis. He is particularly interested in understanding how TB drug-resistance and medical comorbidities such as HIV frustrate current efforts to control epidemics, with an ultimate goal of developing more effective approaches to limit the morbidity caused by this pathogen. Dr. Cohen’s training is in epidemiology and clinical medicine, and his work includes mathematical modeling, fieldwork, and analysis…

Reza Yaesoubi

Assistant Professor of Public Health (Health Policy)
Yale School of Public Health

Dr. Yaesoubi’s research focuses on medical decision making and model-based evaluation of health policies. His work incorporates mathematical and computer simulation models, statistical methods, and optimization techniques to guide resource allocation and decision making in public health and health delivery systems. He has applied these methods in conducting cost-effectiveness analyses of colorectal cancer screening strategies, estimating societal willingness-to-pay for health, and characterizing performance-based payment systems for preventive care systems. His…
