Sharon Browning is a Research Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Washington in Seattle. Her research focuses on the development of computationally efficient methods for analysis of large-scale genetic data, with a particular emphasis on modelling linkage disequilibrium correlation along the genome. She has developed methods for haplotype phasing, genotype imputation, rare variant gene-aggregation association testing, detection of segments of identity by descent, estimation of recent effective population sizes, and inferring segments of archaic introgression.
