Dr. Haas joined the Infections and Immunoepidemiology Branch (IIB) as a postdoctoral fellow in 2021. He earned his Ph.D. and M.P.H. in epidemiology from the University of Washington, Seattle. As a cancer prevention predoctoral trainee, he conducted research in disparities of colorectal cancer screening in a large integrated health care system, meta-analyses of surveillance modalities for second breast cancers, and qualitative work on cascade genetic testing. His dissertation work leveraged population-based samples with genetic data to understand predisposing factors related to breast cancer.
