Noah Rosenberg is a geneticist working in evolutionary biology, human genetics, and population genetics, now 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.[2][3][4][5][6]


Rosenberg earned his BA in mathematics from Rice University in 1997, his MS in mathematics from Stanford University in 1999, and his PhD in biology from Stanford University in 2001.

Career and research[edit]

Rosenberg completed postdoctoral research 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 in Aurora, Illinois, where he was involved in a number of math competitions. There he developed "The Noah Sheets," a four-page collection of formulas and theorems from algebra and geometry which remains useful in competitions at the middle and high school level. High school competitors in Chicago and elsewhere still use the publication, over ten years after Rosenberg's graduation.[citation needed]
