Michael (Misha) Bouzinier

Senior Research Software Engineer

Michael (Misha) Bouzinier is an experienced software developer interested in data modeling, genetics, and evolution. Born and educated in Moscow, Russia, Misha spent 10 years supervising projects in the educational and biotechnology sectors. Misha went on to manage the GUI development at Parametric Technology Corporation, before joining InterSystems in 2001, where he designed and developed software that applied various InterSystems technologies to the Lifescience domain. In 2017 he assumed the role of Director of Informatics at the Brigham Genomic Medicine (BGM) program. In collaboration with the Sunyaev lab, he led the development of computational methods for human Mendelian genetics. In 2018 Misha together with colleagues at Brigham Genomic Medicine co-founded the Forome Association - a community of contributors to the Forome Open Genomics Platform.
