Daniel "Danny" Mark Lewin (Hebrew: דניאל (דני) מארק לוין); (May 14, 1970 – September 11, 2001) was an American-Israeli mathematician and entrepreneur best known for co-founding internet company Akamai Technologies. He died in the September 11 attacks.
He served for four years in the Israel Defense Forces as an officer in Sayeret Matkal, one of the more notable IDF special forces units. Lewin earned the rank of captain.
He attended the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa while simultaneously working at IBM's research laboratory in the city. While at IBM, he was responsible for developing the Genesys system, a processor verification tool that is used widely within IBM and in other companies such as Advanced Micro Devices and SGS-Thomson.

While there, he and his advisor, Professor F. Thomson Leighton, came up with innovative algorithms for optimizing Internet traffic.
