Olga Troyanskaya, Ph.D.

Computer Science/LSI

Olga Troyanskaya is an Associate Professor in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics and the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University, USA. Her work bridges computer science and molecular biology in an effort to develop better methods for analysis of diverse genomic data with the goal of understanding and modeling the function, interactions, and regulation of diverse biomolecules in biological pathways. Her group includes computational and experimental aspects, and tackles diverse questions including developing integrative technologies for pathway prediction and the study of biological networks in aging and complex human disease. Dr. Troyanskaya is an Associate Editor for Bioinformatics, PLOS Computational Biology, and G3, and co-Editor of the Computational Biology book series from Springer. She received her Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2003, and is a recipient of the Sloan Research Fellowship, the NSF CAREER award, the Howard Wentz faculty award from Princeton University, and the Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists Finalist Award. She has also been honored as one of the top young technology innovators by the MIT Technology Review and is the 2011 recipient of the Overton Prize from the International Society for Computational Biology.
