ALIAS: Edward J. Wegman, Edward Wegman
Professor Edward J. Wegman received his B.S. in mathematics degree from St. Louis University in 1965. He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematical statistics from the University of Iowa, the latter degree in 1968. Subsequently, he spent 10 years on the faculty of the world-class Department of Statistics at the University of North Carolina. Dr. Wegman\'s early career focused on the development of aspects of the theory of mathematical statistics. In 1978, Professor Wegman went to the Office of Naval Research (ONR) where he was the Head of the Mathematical Sciences Division. In this role, he had responsibility Navy-wide for basic research programs in applied mathematics, statistics and probability, systems theory, operations research, discrete mathematics, communication theory, and numerical analysis and computational architectures. In addition, he was responsible for a variety of cross-disciplinary areas including such projects as mathematical models of biological intelligence, mathematical methods for remote sensing, and topological methods in chemistry. As part of his duties at the Office of Naval Research, coined the phrase, computational statistics, and developed a high profile research area around this concept. The idea was to focus on techniques and methodologies which could not be achieved without the capabilities of modern computing resources. This program led to a revolution in contemporary statistical graphics. Dr. Wegman was the original program director of the basic research program in Ultra High Speed Computing at the Strategic Defense Initiative\'s Innovative Science and Technology Office (Star Wars Program). As the SDI program officer, Dr. Wegman was responsible for programs in software development tools, highly parallel architectures and optical computing
