Rosenberg lab at Stanford University
Rosenberg Lab, June 2016: Filippo Disanto, Alan Aw, Susan Mello, Jonathan Kang, Jaehee Kim, Ilana Arbisser, Rohan Mehta, Olga Kamneva, Doc Edge, Amy Goldberg, Nicolas Alcala, Lawrence Uricchio, Noah Rosenberg.

Noah Rosenberg, principal investigator. Noah received his B.A. in mathematics from Rice University in 1997, his M.S. in mathematics from Stanford University in 1999, and his Ph.D. in biology from Stanford University in 2001. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship in the molecular and computational biology group at the University of Southern California.

From 2005-2011, Noah was on the faculty of the University of Michigan (Departments of Human Genetics, Biostatistics, and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Center for Computational Medicine and Biology, and the Life Sciences Institute).

In July 2011, he joined the faculty of the Department of Biology at Stanford University. [brief bio]

Ilana Arbisser, Ph.D. student. Ilana completed her B.A. in biology with a concentration in biological mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research interests are in computational, mathematical, and statistical problems in population genetics and genomics. (Aug 2014 - present)
Kaleda Denton (Kayla), Ph.D. student. Kayla completed her B.S. in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution at the University of California, Los Angeles. As an undergraduate, she performed research on evolutionary and ecological aspects of animal and human behavior — on such topics as foraging algorithms in Argentine ants, birdsong syntax during vocal interactions in Cassin's vireo, and evolution of human moral norms. Her research interests are in evolution of behavior, cultural evolution, and mathematical modeling in evolutionary biology. (Sep 2018 - present)
Hormazd Godrej, undergraduate. Hormazd is a senior majoring in biology. The focus of his academic interests is the intersection of computation, math, and biology, and he is pursuing the new computational biology track of the biology major. His research in the lab is centered on runs of homozygosity and Jewish genetics. (Sep 2016 - present)
Gili Greenbaum, postdoc. Gili completed his B.S. in mathematics and philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and his M.S. and Ph.D. in population genetics at Ben Gurion University. During his Ph.D., Gili focused on the intersection of population genetics and network theory, developing the NetStruct program for inference of population structure. He also worked on a number of empirical problems in molecular ecology and conservation genetics. Gili's work in the lab includes topics in coalescent theory and network theory. (Sep 2017 - present)
Zoe Himwich, undergraduate. Zoe is a junior majoring in mathematics and English. Her academic interests also include philosophy and physics. Zoe has worked previously as a research assistant in inverterbrate zoology at the Smithsonian and in satellite trajectory design at NASA. In the lab, Zoe is studying the combinatorics of evolutionary trees. (April 2017 - present)
Jaehee Kim, postdoc. Jaehee completed her B.A. in physics and mathematics at Columbia University, and her Ph.D. in physics at Stanford University. For her Ph.D. work, involving both experiment and theory, she examined the dynamics of a light-induced isomerization of an organic molecule. Jaehee's research interests in the lab include topics in population-genetic dynamical systems, statistical methods in population genetics, and mathematical phylogenetics. (Oct 2015 - present)
Rohan Mehta, Ph.D. student. Rohan completed his B.S. in biology and mathematics at the University of California, San Diego. He performed undergraduate research in both evolutionary modeling and ecology. Rohan's research interests are in ecosystem structure, population genetics, spatial models, and theoretical biology. His work is supported by a Stanford Graduate Fellowship. (Sep 2013 - present)
Alissa Severson, Ph.D. student (Genetics Ph.D. program). Alissa completed her B.A. in mathematics and chemistry at Carleton College, where she participated in the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program. After college, she worked for two years in clinical genomics and bioinformatics at the Univesity of Washington and the Institute for Systems Biology, Seattle. Alissa's interests in the lab are in human population genetics and genomics. Her work is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. (Jan 2017 - present)
Lawrence Uricchio, postdoc. Lawrence received a B.A. in physics from Carleton College, and M.S. degrees in biophysical sciences and computer science from the University of Chicago. He completed his Ph.D. in bioinformatics at the University of California, San Francisco. Lawrence's Ph.D. research focused on methods of stochastic simulation for population-genetic models of natural selection, as well as on the consequences of population-genetic phenomena for rare-variant tests of genetic association with disease. (May 2015 - present)
Susan Mello, administrative associate. Susan is an experienced administrative associate who has worked in a variety of workplace settings, including financial, legal, non-profit, and education. She joins us most recently from Sacramento, and before that, Atlanta. Susan provides expert administrative support for the lab's research and education activities. (Oct 2015 - present)
