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. [brief bio]
Egor Alimpiev, undergraduate. Egor is a freshman interested in math, bioinformatics, and evolution. In high school, Egor conducted genomics research in Drosophila, using both laboratory and bioinformatics techniques. Egor's studies in the lab focus on combinatorics of evolutionary trees.

Airam Blancas, postdoc. Airam completed her bachelor's degree in mathematics at the Univeridad Autónoma de Sinaloa and her M.S. and Ph.D. in probability and statistics at CIMAT, Centro de Investigación de Matemáticas in Guanajuato. Airam's work examines stochastic processes, particularly those related to evolutionary biology — branching processes, coalescent theory, tree-valued stochastic processes, and nested coalescent processes that can be used for investigating gene-tree and species-tree evolution concurrently. Airam joins us from Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, where she completed an initial postdoctoral experience. Her work at Stanford is joint with the group of Prof. Julia Palacios. (Jan 2019 - present)
Danny Cotter, Ph.D. student (Genetics Ph.D. program). Danny received a B.S. in 2018 from Arizona State University, majoring in Biological Sciences (Genetics, Cell and Developmental Biology) and minoring in Mathematics. His undergraduate research examined genetic diversity on the X chromosome, focusing on differences between pseudoautosomal and non-recombining regions. In the lab, Danny's work is in the areas of theoretical and human population genetics, particularly in relation to identity by descent, runs of homozygosity, the X chromosome. His work is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. (Jan 2019 - 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. Her work is supported by a Stanford Graduate Fellowship. (Sep 2018 - 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)
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)
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)
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)
