Kiley Graim, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor


Dr. Graim received her Ph.D. in 2016 from the University of California, Santa Cruz, advised by Professor Josh Stuart. She did postdoctoral research at Princeton University and the Flatiron Institute, Simons Foundation, working with Professor Olga Troyanskaya. Dr. Graim’s research operates at the confluence of life science research and computer science. Her lab develops machine learning models that integrate diverse large-scale genomics data to address key questions in human health and disease. These models effectively probe complex biological networks to answer questions arising from basic science and translational research. Dr. Graim’s overarching goal is to map the mechanisms of human diseases and to enable development of personalized therapies.
