Georg Seelig is a professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering and at the Paul G. Allen School for Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. He is an adjunct professor in Bioengineering. Seelig is interested in understanding how biological organisms process information using complex biochemical networks and how such networks can be engineered to program cellular behavior. His approach combines synthetic biology, machine learning and the development of novel tools for genomics. Seelig holds a PhD in physics from the University of Geneva in Switzerland and did postdoctoral work in synthetic biology and DNA nanotechnology at Caltech. He received a Burroughs Wellcome Foundation Career Award at the Scientific Interface, an NSF Career Award, a Sloan Research Fellowship, a DARPA Young Faculty Award, and a ONR Young Investigator Award among others. Seelig is a co-founder of Parse Biosciences, a single cell analysis company.
