Tina Hu-Seliger, Ph.D., is Director of Bioinformatics of Elysium Health, where she applies an integrative omics approach to her work with the goal of improving health through science. Prior to Elysium, she worked at Celmatix where she led the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology team to bring personalized medicine to reproductive health.
Tina was a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University where she examined evolutionary forces impacting lineage-specific patterns in the fruit fly Drosophila. Her graduate work ranged from detecting natural selection and quantifying linkage disequilibrium in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, to studies of recombination mechanisms and the evolution of genome size in this species. She received her B.A. in mathematics-computer science as well as B.S. in general biology from the University of California, San Diego (Revelle College), her M.S. in computational molecular biology as well as Ph.D. in computational biology and bioinformatics from the University of Southern California.
