Dr Jonatan Almagor

  • Research Assistant (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)

Biography

Dr. Jonatan Almagor joined the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in September 2018. He is part of the Unit's Neighbourhoods and Complexity programmes. Jonatan Studied Geography and completed a Masters in Geo-informatics. He received his PhD from the Porter School of Environmental Studies at Tel Aviv University. In his PhD research he investigated urban dynamics and evaluated the impact of land use planning on urban development. In his research he used remote sensing data and geographic information system (GIS) for spatial analysis of the urban landscape, and developed an agent-based model that explores the outcomes of interactions between urban developers and planning regulators. Before joining the Unit he worked as a researcher at the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine at the Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical-center Medical Center investigating the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, using agent-based and mathematical models.

As part of the Neighborhoods and Communities programme, he develops an agent-based model (ABM) that simulates children's activities and mobility in the urban environment to examine the impact of the neighborhood settings on children’s health and wellbeing.
