Anke Huels, PhD, MSc, is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University. Dr. Huels is a member of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.
Dr. Huels received her PhD and MSc, both in Biostatistics, from TU Dortmund University in Dortmund, Germany. She completed her postdoctoral training at University of British Columbia and at Emory University.
Dr. Huels' research involves the development of epidemiological methods and their direct application to environmental and genetic epidemiology. Examples include the association between outdoor and indoor air pollution with human health, methods and applications for the detection of gene-environment (GxE) interactions, and current challenges in the analysis of DNA methylation data. Her aim is to improve the understanding of environmental risk factors particularly in susceptible populations that are often at a higher risk for disease.
