      Tomer Hertz received his Ph.D. in computational neuroscience from the Hebrew University in the field of machine learning and pattern recognition. His then joined Microsoft Research as a potdoctoral student in computational immunology focusing on developing and applying algorithms for MHC-peptide binding and also for HLA supertype classification. He then joined the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center where he has been a faculty member in the vaccine and infectious disease division for seven years focusing on immunological research in both Influenza and HIV as disease models. In 2014, he joined the department of immunology at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel where he heads a systems immunology lab that studies the role of immune history and its effect on vaccination and natural infection, modeling peptide:MHC:TCR interactions, and novel methods for the analysis of high-dimensional immunological data.
