Dr. Rosen joined Drexel University in the Fall of 2006 as an Assistant Professor where she leads the Biochemical Signal Processing Laboratory.

The Biochem SP group pursues four major projects:

  • Developing new methods and technologies to mine metagenomic data to study the human microbiome and soil samples
  • Developing bio-sensors using chemotaxis and gene expression in cells to detect trace chemicals
  • Developing Bio-inspired robotic solutions for chemical localization
  • Innovative engineering education with a current project to introduce engineering in the high school curriculum

In her graduate studies, Dr. Rosen was a recipient of a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, NSF GK-12 Teaching Fellowship, and an AT&T Research Laboratories grant. She has received numerous awards such as a 2003 Georgia Tech ECE Outstanding Teaching award, a 2005 Georgia Tech Outstanding Research Paper award, 2nd place in the best student paper competition in the 2004 IEEE Sensors Conference, and a Best Student Paper award in the 2006 IEEE Conference on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) conference.

Dr. Rosen serves as the IEEE Philadelphia Section Chapter Chair for Signal Processing. Her professional memberships include IEEE, the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, and the Society of Women Engineers.
