Area of Research
Dr Greenwood, a senior researcher and statistician, has made significant contributions to the fields of genetics, genomics, and genetic epidemiology. Her work involves the development and application of a wide range of statistical approaches aimed at improving our understanding of how genome and environmental factors influence disease risks and progression. This has culminated in the creation of a number of algorithms and analytical software programs. Dr Greenwood also co-led the UK10K statistical team, which studied the genetic code of 10,000 people to investigate how rare, low-frequency genetic variants contribute to human disease. The study established an enduring data resource for future research in human genetics. Recently, her group has been focusing on ways of characterizing tumour abnormalities, analysis methods for rare genetic variants such as those identified by sequencing studies, and analysis of DNA methylation data.
Publications & Impact Profile: Dr Greenwood’s work has led to her nomination to the Boards of Directors for the Canadian Genetics and Genomics Society and to the International Genetic Epidemiology Society.
