Evan Cofer


I am a computational biologist at Asimov Inc. in Boston, MA. You can read more about the work we are doing at Asimov here.

I was previously a postdoctoral fellow in the Marks Lab at Harvard Medical School, where I worked on modeling genetic variation in both coding and non-coding regions of the genome. In 2023 I received my PhD in Quantitative and Computational Biology from Princeton University, where I was advised by Olga Troyanskaya. I received my BS in Computer Science from Trinity University in 2017.

I work on computational techniques for analyzing large-scale sets of genomic sequences and variants. In general, I am interested in how we can develop and use machine learning models to better understand, predict, and design regulatory mechanisms.

In my free time, I like to climb rocks outdoors and play tabletop RPGs indoors.
