Rosenberg Lab | Research
We have general interests in the field of spatial analysis and statistics. These are methods designed for analyzing data with respect to their spatial (i.e., geographic) distribution. These methods are important because spatial patterning gives information about underlying processes affecting an observed phenomenon. Furthermore, spatially distributed data violated the assumption of independence common to standard statistical testing. Beyond the basic use and development of spatial analysis methods, my lab produces software for the statistical analysis of spatially distributed data called PASSaGE and the constrution of a new version of this software is currently a major focus in my lab.
In addition, we are interested in the intersection of genetics, geography, and phylogeny, currently studies in two related disciplines: landscape genetics and phylogeography.
