Education and professional background

Yaël Tibi-Lévy is an economist by training and holds a PhD in public health (health economics) (2007), a Master in modeling applied to economics and management (1994) and a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DEA) in finance (1994). After working as a research fellow at the Centre de Recherche en Gestion (CRG) of the Ecole Polytechnique, then at the Ecole Nationale de la Santé Publique (ENSP, Groupe Image), she joined the CNRS in 2002 as an engineer: first at the Centre de Recherche en Economie et Gestion Appliquée à la Santé (Cregas), then at the Centre de Recherche Médecine, Sciences, Santé, Société (Cermes), where she still works.

Recent or ongoing research projects

Yaël Tibi-Lévy specializes in the evaluation of health actions and is an engineer in the production, processing and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data. Her thesis, entitled "Palliative care teams in the process of rationalizing care - Between ideological commitment and financial constraints", has given rise to numerous publications, which she has subsequently regularly enriched with new work (for example, on the information needs of people at the end of life and their loved ones, on the place and role of support volunteers in care units, or on the dissemination of the palliative approach in French hospitals). In recent years, she has been interested in questions as diverse as the profile of children followed in medical-psychological structures (within the framework of a project coordinated by Aude Béliard, lecturer at the Université Paris Cité), the accompaniment of people with Alzheimer's disease living at home (as a contribution to a study led by Catherine Le Galès, DR Inserm) or the life course of drug users from Eastern Europe living in Paris (in the context of a larger research project directed by Marie Jauffret-Roustide, CR Inserm). Her current work focuses on the issue of the medical evacuation of young children born in Mayotte to the island of La Réunion (in collaboration with Lynda Lotte and Aude Béliard of Cermes3) and on the interface between disability and religion through community life (in collaboration with Zvika Orr and Anatsa).
