Michael S. Rosenberg is an associate professor in the Center for Evolutionary Medicine and Informatics of the Biodesign Institute and the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University.
Although a bit of a research dilettante with an eclectic focus, Dr. Rosenberg's primary research is in computational evolutionary biology and bioinformatics. In general, he is interested in understanding the processes that control diversity and similarity among living organisms. This covers a broad array of topics and questions within ecology and evolution, from phylogenetics and macroevolution to molecular evolution and from single organisms to populations and ecosystems.
Dr. Rosenberg's research encompasses a multi-faceted approach to computational evolutionary biology, but tends to focus on novel statistical and computer methodology (e.g., simulation, spatial statistics, meta-analysis, and geometric morphometrics) to better describe and analyze empirical phenomena.
Dr. Rosenberg received his Ph.D. in 2000 from the Department of Ecology & Evolution of the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He received his bachelor's degree in 1994 from Northwestern University with a triple major in biology, anthropology, and geology.
