Discovering the causes of cancer and the means of prevention

Ian Buller, Ph.D., M.A., joined the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch (OEEB) as an NCI Cancer Prevention Fellow in 2019. Dr. Buller earned a concurrent B.A./M.A. in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2013 and a Ph.D. in environmental health sciences from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in 2019. His dissertation work focused on the spatial epidemiology of Yersinia pestis in the United States. Dr. Buller’s research interests include spatial analysis and the assessment of exposure to environmental carcinogens.

In OEEB, Dr. Buller characterizes spatial patterns in environmental risk factors and evaluates their role in cancer etiology, under the mentorship of Rena Jones, Ph.D., M.S., tenure-track investigator, and Mary Ward, Ph.D., senior investigator.
