2003 Ph.D., New York University New York, NY 10012 Mathematics Dissertation Title: “Deterministic and Stochastic Mathematical Modeling and Computer Simulation of the Mammalian Intracellular Circadian Clock”
Professor Forger's research is devoted to understanding biological clocks. He uses techniques from many fields, including computer simulation, detailed mathematical modeling and mathematical analysis, to understand biological timekeeping. His research aims to generate predictions that can be experimentally verified.
