Nina Sachdev

Graduate Student
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics

I graduated from Wellesley College in 2021 with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. As an undergraduate, I worked in the Lohmueller Lab at UCLA to study the role of deleterious variation in detecting Neanderthal ancestry across the human genome. After graduating, I spent two years as an associate computational biologist in the Macosko Lab at the Broad Institute, where I analyzed our single-cell and spatial transcriptomic atlas of the adult mouse brain, as part of the BRAIN Initiative. At Princeton, I hope to develop computational methods in the genomics space that will further our understanding of human disease. In my free time, I love playing the piano, biking, solving crossword puzzles, and hanging out with friends.
