Siavash Nazari BSc (MSc Student)

I received my BSc. in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in July 2015. I have a passion for nature and the magnificence of the living, and throughout my undergraduate studies I pursued this passion by attending several herpetology workshops as well as taking elective courses like Genetics and Fundamentals of Bioinformatics.

Thus, continuing my studies in a field that combines computer science and biology was the ideal choice for me; I joined the Hajibabaei lab as an MSc. student in September 2015. My main interest is combining my knowledge in computer science to solve problems having biological aspects. My research will explore how chemical stresses in an environment affect the transcriptome of its species.
