I studied mathematics, physics, and philosophy at Princeton. Then I got a Master's degree in History at Yeshiva University, followed by a Master's in Applied Physics at HarvardMost recently, I completed a PhD in Applied Math and Biomedical engineering at Harvard and MIT.  My PhD advisors were Eric Lander and Martin Nowak.

More specifically, I participated in a joint program. One half was the PhD program at the department of Applied Mathematics at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Science. The other half was at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Science and Technology, where I completed the PhD program in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics, including the Genomics and Bioastronautics tracks.

I am thankful for graduate fellowships from the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense/NDSEG, NASA, the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, and the National Institutes of Health.

You may have seen some of my earlier papers under the name 'Erez Lieberman' or 'Erez Lieberman-Aiden'. I now go by 'Erez Lieberman Aiden' or just 'Erez Aiden'.
