Sarah Mostafavi, PhD

Associate Professor, Paul Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Washington

I am an Associate Professor at the Paul Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington (UW).

Before joining UW, I was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Statistics and the Department of Medical Genetics at University of British Columbia (UBC), and a faculty member at the Vector Institute. I also held a Canada Research Chair (CRC II) in Computational Biology (2015-2020), and a Canada CIFAR Chair in Artificial Intelligence (CIFAR-AI).

Before joining UBC, I did my postdoctoral fellowship with Daphne Koller at Stanford University. I got my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in 2011, working with Quaid Morris. My PhD thesis was on integrating large-scale genomics and proteomics datasets to predict gene function. Check out GeneMANIA to find out more about this project!
