Noah Rosenberg is a geneticist working in evolutionary biology, human genetics, and population genetics, now Associate Professor at Stanford University. His research is concerned with quantifiable changes in the human genome over time, and he is famous for his studies of human genetic clustering.[1][2][3][4]

Rosenberg earned his BA in Mathematics from Rice University (1997), his MS in Mathematics and his PhD in Biological Sciences from Stanford University (1999, 2001), and his Postdoc in Computational Biology from University of Southern California (2001–2005).

Rosenberg is perhaps most famous outside the population genetics field for work that he did as a teenager. He spent his last three years of high school at the prestigious Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA) in Aurora, Illinois, where he was involved in a number of math competitions. There he developed the "Noah Sheets," a four page collection of challenging elementary results from algebra and geometry that are useful in competitions at the high school level. High school competitors in Chicago and elsewhere still use them, over ten years after Rosenberg graduated.
