Hari Iyer

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health

Hari is a cancer epidemiologist studying how multilevel biological and neighborhood factors influence susceptibility for prostate and other cancers. His work informs “precision prevention” approaches for cancer control, which target screening and early detection interventions based on sociodemographic and geographic characteristics of communities at risk.

Hari earned his ScD in cancer epidemiology at Harvard and MPH at Boston University. His work draws on expertise in geospatial analysis and experience applying epidemiologic methods for mediation analysis. As part of SpacEE Lab, Hari has led studies examining associations between neighborhood contextual environments and prostate cancer using data from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study and state registry-based cohorts of men with prostate cancer. He supports colleagues in use of SAS, R, ArcMap and Google Earth Engine.
