Hi, I'm Isin!

I am a Ph.D. fellow at the University of Copenhagen, supervised by Thorfinn Sand Korneliussen and Rasmus Nielsen.

I am interested in bioinformatics, population genetics and statistical genomics. More specifically, my research interest revolves around developing novel methods and statistical frameworks aiming to disentangle evolutionary histories of populations, and implementing these methods into fast and efficient software.

I am a Linux geek <i use arch btw>. I use i3wm and vim. I like reading, playing video games, programming, rambling about philosophy, cringing at bad physics takes, stoicism, playing piano, blitz chess and speedcubing.

For more, you can check my personal website, or find me on Isin AltinkayaMastodon @IsinAltinkaya and Isin Altinkaya | Twitter Twitter @IsinAltinkaya .

You can contact me by e-mail at, with poly-G tail removed.
