Portrait of Bichlien Nguyen

Bichlien Nguyen

Senior Researcher


I am a senior researcher at Microsoft in Redmond, WA working at the intersection of chemistry, biology, computer science, and electrical engineering. I am also an affiliate assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington.

My main interests are in developing sustainable infrastructure for datacenters including DNA data storage systems. I am very fortunate to work with an amazing team in the Molecular Information Systems Lab at UW CSE and enjoy collaborating with different research groups from all academic fields around the world.

I received my PhD in Chemistry from Washington University in St. Louis in 2015. I came to Microsoft Research as a postdoc shortly after.
