Sasha Tulchinsky

Senior Technical Programmer

Dr. Sasha Tulchinsky is a Senior Technical Programmer based in OHT’s Washington, D.C. office. His current work is focused on mathematical and computational modeling of infectious diseases, including antibiotic-resistant pathogens and viral infections, with the goal of understanding transmission dynamics and predicting the effects of interventions. He serves as a technical lead on research for the CDC-funded MInD Healthcare project, which seeks to model the spread of antibiotic-resistant infections in healthcare networks in order to predict risk to patients and inform prevention strategies.

Sasha received his Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where he developed computational models of genetic interactions and host-pathogen coevolution. He has taught undergraduate classes in general biology, genetics, and molecular biology at the University of Massachusetts and the State University of New York.
