Marisa Eisenberg

Associate Professor of Complex Systems, Epidemiology and Mathematics, University of Michigan

Marisa Eisenberg received her Ph.D. and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2009. She then spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow studying mathematical biology at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at Ohio State University, before joining the faculty at University of Michigan as an assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology.

Marisa Eisenberg's research is in mathematical biology, and is centered around using and developing parameter estimation and identifiability techniques to connect math models and disease data. Her recent research has been primarily in modeling infectious diseases, particularly examining cholera and waterborne disease. She has also developed models of cancer and endocrine disorders. Some current areas of interest include: parameter identifiability and estimation, infectious diseases, cholera and waterborne diseases, cancer modeling, global health, networks and complexity.
