Nil Sahin

I work as a computational scientist at Cyclica, by helping with the optimization of our scientific platforms that enable drug discovery. I enjoy implementing scientific algorithms, building computational tools and working in teams. I am proud of applying my science knowledge to healthcare, helping with combating diseases and improving the quality of our lives.

I have a Ph.D. from the Department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto. I had been co-supervised by Prof. Brenda Andrews and Prof. Quaid Morris. My thesis focused on developing computational methods to automatically detect abnormalities due to mutations to better understand the gene function.

In my free times, I love to do yoga, walk and make electronic music. Check out my music on SoundCloud 🎶.
