Samuel Isaacson


Boston University

Samuel Isaacson received his Sc.B. from Brown University, and Ph.D. from the Courant Institute at New York University. After a postdoc in the mathematical biology group at the University of Utah he joined the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Boston University, where he is currently a Professor. He research spans mathematical biology, systems biology, biophysics, numerical analysis, and scientific computing. Recent research interests include studying how cells can signal robustly in the presence of noisy, spatially heterogeneous environments; investigating mechanisms that can control the initiation of T cell signaling; developing numerical methods for simulating stochastic reaction-diffusion systems; and deriving rigorous coarse grained approximations to such models.
