Edward Wenger leads the Scientific Engineering, Architecture and Technology Accelerator, responsible for setting a consistent technology vision for IDM, translating scientific requirements into modeling architecture, catalyzing uptake of new methodological approaches, and incubating new scientific directions.
Edward also leads IDM’s Discovery, Products and Surveillance program, which supports upstream decisions on product development, surveillance design, and tool evaluation with modeling across a range of upstream Global Health and Gender Equality program areas.
Before joining IDM’s disease-modeling program in 2011, Edward 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.
Edward graduated from Dartmouth College and received his Ph.D. in Physics from MIT.
