Shilpa Nadimpalli Kobren

I'm a Ph.D. candidate at Princeton University in the Department of Computer Science and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. My research is in computational and systems biology, where I focus on detecting and interpreting protein interaction and cellular network perturbations within and across organisms in Dr. Mona Singh's lab.

As an undergraduate at Tufts University, I worked with Dr. Lenore Cowen on improving methods for protein structural alignments.

I enjoy traveling, philosophy, tulips, and pumpkin muffins.

Selected Honors



Other Activities

Most recently, I've served as a student activity co-chair for ACM BCB 2017 in Boston. I've also served as the Computer Science Representative and an Events Board member on Princeton's Graduate Student Government (2011-2014), as President of Jewish Graduate Students and Young Professionals (2012-2014), and as a member of Princeton's Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (2011-present). I am a college interviewer through Tufts' Alumni Admissions Program. In 2013 and 2015, I served as a panelist for two undergraduate events: "How to Get the Most Out of Office Hours" and "Applying to Graduate School in Computer Science". I have also been selected to meet with the Princeton Leadership Council, Princeton Board of Trustees, and Princeton Alumni Association to talk about programs and initiatives in the School of Engineering.
