Stanford Professor of Population Genetics & Society

Department of Biology

Bio:

Noah Rosenberg performs mathematical and statistical research in human genetics and evolutionary biology, with an emphasis on population-genetic theory and the study of human genetic variation and its history. In his studies of human variation, one of his interests is in the genetics of Jewish populations. He serves on the editorial boards of Evolution, Medicine & Public HealthGenetics, and Human Biology, and he is the Editor-in-Chief ofTheoretical Population Biology. Prof. Rosenberg received his B.A. in mathematics from Rice University and his M.S. in mathematics and Ph.D. in biology from Stanford University, and he completed his postdoctoral training at the University of Southern California. He previously served as a faculty member at the University of Michigan.
