Our Research

Our group is in the Department of Epidemiology at University of Washington and in the Public Health Sciences Division at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA. We study the genetic contribution to complex disease with an emphasis on cancer. Working at the intersection of genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics, we interrogate large-scale-omics data to learn how genes and environment affect risk of developing disease.
