Miriam Berger, MPH

Research Program Lead


Miriam is the administrative lead for the Center and manages or consults on a variety of the team’s digital health trials. 

Miriam received her BA from the University of California at Berkeley and her MPH from the University of California at Los Angeles. She is a proud California native, but has made NC her home with her husband and two kids. She loves sushi, brunch and anything made with goat cheese or extra dark chocolate.

In Miriam’s words:

Favorite guilty pleasure: Books. Is that really a guilty pleasure though?

Finish this sentence: If I wasn’t working in global digital science, I would be…A travel or food writer. Or a traveling food writer. Combines two of my favorite things!

The best place to eat in Durham is: M Sushi downtown. The fish is apparently flown in from all over the world several times a week and is so fresh and creatively prepared.
