Purchase College is part of the SUNY system. Rosenberg is a research
professor in the Environmental Studies program (she's also described
as a molecular biologist on some websites). Her research interests
"focus on implications of the use of biological and nuclear weapons;
bioterrorism", but she doesn't seem to have a website of her own. She
is attacked on the far-right website freerepublic.com as a "tenured
Marxist activist" because she argued early on that the anthrax attacks
were an inside job, not the work of Islamic terrorists. --Phil
