Director of Global Health Research
Dr. Edward Wenger directs the IDM global health research program, which includes analyses related to malaria, HIV, TB, pneumonia, enteric diseases, and emergent pathogens. Before joining the disease-modeling program in 2011, Dr. Wenger managed the development, validation, and release of reconstruction and simulation algorithms for the heavy-ion project of the CMS experiment at CERN. He supervised the processing and distribution of a petabyte of data from the first heavy-ion collision run, and directed the planning and execution of the first silicon-based analyses. Dr. Wenger graduated from Dartmouth College and received his Ph.D. in Physics from MIT.
