I'm Jeff Nivala, a Research Scientist and Principal Investigator at the University of Washington. I work closely with faculty and students as part of the Molecular Information Systems Lab in the Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering. My scientific interests are broadly focused on the intersection of molecular and synthetic biology/biochemistry with technology development. My research has been published in widely read journals such as Nature, Science, and Nature Biotechnology. In 2017, I was recognized by Forbes Magazine as a "30 Under 30" in science. My post-doctoral work was performed in George Church's lab at Harvard Medical School. I was a graduate student fellow of the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) as a PhD student in the UCSC Nanopore Group with Mark Akeson, and a Washington Research Foundation Fellow in David Baker's lab during my undergraduate work.
I occasionally indulge in more artistic creative outlets, including music, video, and fine art projects, some of which can be found here.
