Olga Troyanskaya is a professor of computer science and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. “I’m a computer scientist who has an experimental wet-lab,” said Troyanskaya, who came to Princeton in 2003 after earning her Ph.D. at Stanford University. “This is very unusual—and at Princeton it’s completely natural.”
Sophomore Tyler Eddy always dreamed of becoming a scientist, but that plan was nearly derailed when he dropped out of college.
