Caroline E. Wagner, PhD
Caroline Wagner is an Assistant Professor in the department of Bioengineering. Her research interests include biomaterial design and characterization for disease applications, population-level and within-host models of infectious disease dynamics, as well as topics in health policy. She holds an MSc and PhD from MIT. Her doctoral research project used a combination of experimentation and mathematical modeling to understand how the fluid mechanical properties of biological gels (mucus in particular) could be interpreted as indicators of the underlying biopolymer microstructure. Her most recent postdoctoral work at Princeton University combined topics from immunology, epidemiology, climate science, mathematical modeling, behavioural economics, and public health. In her free time Caroline enjoys cooking, running, and traveling.
