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]

Bridget Algee-Hewitt, postdoc. Bridget completed her Ph.D. in biological anthropology at the University of Tennessee. She also holds an M.A. in near eastern and classical archaeology from Bryn Mawr College. In her Ph.D., Bridget performed mixture modeling to cluster human craniometric variation. She also examined the historical use of terms relating to "race" in the anthropology literature. While finishing her Ph.D., Bridget taught at Grand Valley State University, and she has served as the Haslam Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Forensic Anthropology at the University of Tennessee. (Sep 2013 - present)
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)
Alan Aw, undergraduate. Alan is a junior majoring in mathematical and computational science. Alan has diverse interests in math and science. He has pursued research in a number of areas, including combinatorics and mathematical psychology. His research focus in the lab is in the mathematics of evolutionary trees and in mathematical properties of population-genetic statistics. (Aug 2015 - present)
Hormazd Godrej, undergraduate. Hormazd is a junior 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)
Amy Goldberg, Ph.D. student. Amy completed her B.S. in biological anthropology and mathematics at the University of Michigan, where she was an undergraduate researcher in the lab. Her interests are in human evolutionary genetics, and she is currently working on mathematical modeling and statistical problems in anthropological genetics. Amy's work is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. (Sep 2012 - present)
Jonathan Kang, Ph.D. student. Jonathan completed his B.S. in applied mathematics and biology at Brown University, where he wrote an undergraduate thesis on bacterial evolution. He has worked in computational biology and genomics at the Bioinformatics Institute of Singapore. Jonathan's research interests are in experimental evolution, human population genetics, and population genetics of disease. His work is supported by a National Science Scholarship from the Agency for Science, Technology, and Research, Singapore (A*STAR). (Sep 2013 - 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)
