Jacob N. Oppenheim
I am a graduate fellow at Rockefeller University in the Laboratory of Mathematical Physics. Most generally, I am interested in the application of statistical physics to biology. My work concerns the structure of three- dimensional vascular networks, using the rat liver as a model system. I am also involved in work concerning auditory processing, evolution/phylogenetics, and demography (the last with Joel Cohen).
Previously, I was an undergraduate in Physics at Princeton University, where I graduated with honors in 2009. My senior thesis was on the applicability of standard diffusion models to Fisher's Model of Adaptation. I additionally worked with David Stern (now at Janelia Farm) on a theoretical model of pleiotropy.
