kasia-image Katarzyna “Kasia” Bryc (pronunciation guide: /ˈkaɕa/wiki)

I am a statistical geneticist, with deep expertise in population genetics, data analysis and algorithm development, and a commitment to leveraging genetic diversity in research with the aim of reducing health disparities.

I have been the recipient of an NIH SBIR Phase I grant, and an NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award, and developed numerous algorithms as products and patent applications. I build teams and drive interdisciplinary collaboration; I have developed research surveys and optimized data collection, and worked closely with partners in Engineering, Design, Communications, and Marketing to launch impactful products. I am an advocate for diversity in all stages of research and product development.

From March 2014 to June 2023 I worked on the Research, Product, and R&D teams at 23andMe. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School with David Reich. I received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Biometry at Cornell under Carlos Bustamante and a B.A. from Stanford in M&CS.
