Sergey Ocvhinnikov

Massachusetts Institute of Technology


Sergey Ovchinnikov received his B.S. in Micro/Molecular Biology from Portland State University and his Ph.D in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Washington in Seattle working. Whilst in the lab of Dr. David Baker, Sergey worked on algorithms for protein structure determination using evolutionary information. He was a John Harvard Distinguished Science Fellow at Harvard University. Sergey joined MIT Biology as an Assistant Professor of Biology in January 2024. His lab focusses on using phylogenetic inference, protein structure prediction/determination, protein design, deep learning, energy-based models, and differentiable programming to tackle evolutionary questions at environmental, organismal, genomic, structural, and molecular scales, with the aim of developing a unified model of protein evolution.
