Nhi Hin is a Bioinformatician at the South Australian Genomics Centre (SAGC) situated in SAHMRI. Her research interests include transcriptomics, 10X single-cell RNA-seq and spatial transcriptomics, and omics data integration methods. 

Nhi Hin completed her PhD at the University of Adelaide's Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Laboratory and former Bioinformatics Hub in 2020, supervised by A/Prof. Michael Lardelli, Dr. Stephen Pederson, and Prof. David Adelson. Nhi's doctoral studies involved using transcriptomic analysis to elucidate incipient stages of Alzheimer's disease at the molecular level. Her research has been recognised nationally with multiple awards from bioinformatics and biomedical conferences, and also by the University of Adelaide with a Doctoral Research Medal (top 4% of theses submitted in 2020) and Dean's Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence. A summary of the research completed during her studies is provided in the video presentation below.
