Reza Yaesoubi, Ph.D.

  • 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 to study questions related to extending the effective lifespan of antibiotics for the treatment of gonorrhea, reducing the prevalence of alcohol-exposed pregnancies in the U.S., guiding the use of intensified tuberculosis interventions in high burden settings, and informing meningococcal vaccination strategies in Sub-Saharan Africa. He is also interested in theoretical and methodological issues in medical decision making including cost-effectiveness analysis, large-scale simulation modeling, and adaptive decision making.
