Michael RosarioAssistant Professor of Biology
Dr. Rosario received his B.A. in Integrative Biology from the University of California Berkeley, his M.Sc. in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a Ph.D. in Biology at Duke University. He earned several awards throughout his academic career including a fellowship from the Northeast Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate, the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, and the National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biology. Dr. Rosario's research interest began with understanding the mechanisms of energy storage in biological structures. After postdoctoral training at Brown University, he has since incorporated muscle-spring interactions into his research interests. Dr. Rosario has experience in teaching comparative vertebrate anatomy and scientific computing at both the graduate (SOURCE workshop) and undergraduate (biomechanical programming labs) levels. He is currently teaching Bio 259 - Human Anatomy and Physiology 1.
