Celia and Marcos Maus Professor of Data Sciences at the Department of Industrial Engineering at Tel Aviv University

Prof. Joachim Meyer

A brief bio:

I hold an M.A. in Psychology and a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and Management (1994) from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel (BGU). After completing my Ph.D., I did a post-doc at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.   From 1995 to 2012 I was on the faculty of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.  I founded the Cognitive Engineering laboratory in the department and led the Human Factors track in the M.Sc. program until 2011.

In 2012 I moved to Tel Aviv University where I established an Interacting with Technology (IwiT) laboratory. I served as department chair from 2015 until 2019.

In between, I was from 1999 to 2001 on sabbatical and as a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Transportation Studies where I helped to set up the Age Lab. I was also affiliated with (2012 Nobel Laureate) Al Roth’s experimental economics group at Harvard Business School. During the 2014-2015 academic year I was a visiting professor with the Human Dynamics group at the MIT MediaLab.

I am a Senior Member of IEEE and an elected fellow of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.

Over the years I was Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics - Part A and for IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems and I served on the editorial board of different journals (and am still on the editorial board of Human Factors).

So far, I have been the advisor for more than 50 M.A. or M.Sc. theses and 17 Ph.D. dissertations. If you are interested in my line of research, you are welcome to contact me to inquire about possibilities for M.Sc. or Ph.D. research.
