Co-founder, The Datadyne Group

Dr. Joel Selanikio is a co-founder of the DataDyne Group, and the director of the open source EpiSurveyor project. A pediatrician, former Wall Street computer consultant, and former CDC epidemiologist, he has a passion for combining computer science and public health to address health inequities in developing countries, and is a pioneer in the promotion of open source development for public health.

In his former role as an officer of the Public Health Service, Dr. Selanikio led the response to numerous foreign and domestic outbreaks, and served as the chief of operations for the HHS Secretary's Emergency Command Center in the aftermath of 9/11. He has received awards for outstanding service from the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Defense, and other organizations, and was a recipient of a World Bank Development Marketplace Award in 2003. In 2005, he was honored with the Haverford Award for Humanitarian Service for his work in treating tsunami victims in Aceh, Indonesia (for which he was profiled in the Washington Post). Most recently, Dr. Selanikio has been nominated by the World Bank for the MIT-Lemelson Award for Sustainability, for the development of the open source EpiSurveyor project.

Dr. Selanikio holds a bachelor's degree from Haverford College, and an MD from Brown University, and is a graduate of the Epidemic Intelligence Service fellowship of the CDC. He continues to practice clinical pediatrics both as an assistant professor at Georgetown University and on the Emergency Response Team of the International Rescue Committee, and is a proud volunteer instructor in science and health at Ross Elementary School in Washington, DC.
