Ivana Cvijović


Faculty Hosts:  Daniel Fisher and Steve Quake

Ivana Cvijović holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Systems Biology from Harvard. As a Lewis-Sigler Theory Fellow at Princeton, she studied how populations of white blood cells, the basis of the immune system, evolve over the course of an individual’s lifetime. Her work combines evolutionary theory and the methods of physics and mathematics to understand how mutation and natural selection shape genetic diversity within large populations.
