Olga Troyanskaya

Professor of Computer Science and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics

Olga Troyanskaya is a professor at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics and the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University, where she has been on the faculty since 2003. In 2016 she became the deputy director of Genomics at the Center for Computational Biology at the Flatiron Institute of the Simons Foundation. Her lab employs machine learning and modeling techniques to decode genomes and understand cellular specificity, genotype-phenotype relationships, and cellular networks.Through developing integrative analyses and modeling of complex molecular-level changes captured via diverse multi-omics techniques, including in experimental and clinical context, the approaches enable systems-level molecular views of human health and complex diseases. Most recently, Dr. Troyanskaya conceived of Princeton Precision Health, which was launched in early 2023. Princeton Precision Health aims to create collaborations from seemingly unrelated disciplines in pursuit of innovative research and its translation to equitable health policy.

Dr. Troyanskaya holds a Ph.D. in Biomedical Informatics from Stanford University, has been honored as one of the top young technology innovators by the MIT Technology Review, and is a recipient of the Sloan Research Fellowship, the National Science Foundation CAREER award, the Overton award from the International Society for Computational Biology, and the Ira Herskowitz award from the Genetic Society of America.
