Pawel F. Przytycki


I am a PhD student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow in Dr. Mona Singh's lab in the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University. I am based in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. My research is in computational biology with a focus on the use of algorithms and networks for cancer genomics.

Prior to that I was an I.I. Rabi Science Scholar as an undergraduate student at Columbia University and attended the Math, Science, and Computer Science Magnet at Montgomery Blair High School during which time I was an intern at the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health.

Other Projects

I have been an active participant of HackPrinceton. Two of the projects I worked on were "What Would I Say" which has had millions of users (read about it in The New Yorker) and "Bad Luck or Just Suck" which has had tens of thousands of users.

I also enjoy projecting bouldering problems.
