Pawel Przytycki

Assistant Professor of Computing & Data Sciences

Pawel Przytycki is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences (CDS) and a core faculty member in the Bioinformatics Program. Prior to joining BU, Pawel was a Bioinformatics Fellow at the Gladstone Institutes at the University of California, San Francisco. His research is focused on the development of novel computational methods to understand the regulatory effects of noncoding variants in neurological development and diseases. While high-throughput genetic sequencing makes it possible to unravel the genetics of these diseases, sequencing data is often sparse, high-dimensional, and heterogeneous across individuals and cells. Pawel’s work addresses these challenges through development of algorithms for integrating and interpreting large-scale multi-modal genomics data.

Pawel completed his PhD in Computer Science at Princeton University, where he was an NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Read more about Pawel here.
