Edward Goldstein

Senior Research Scientist
Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics, Department of Epidemiology

Ed Goldstein received his PhD in mathematics from MIT in 2001. He has been working in infectious disease epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health since 2008. The principal themes of Ed’s research are the burden of severe outcomes associated with the circulation of respiratory viruses and risks for hospitalization and mortality carried by individuals in different population groups; the role of different population groups in propagating epidemics resulting from the circulation of influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), pertussis, and other pathogens; the impact of vaccination and other mitigation efforts; and antimicrobial resistance and its relation to rates of hospitalizations and deaths associated with bacterial infections, including sepsis.
