Area of Research

Dr Greenwood is a quantitative-life-sciences statistician, part of a new group of multi-qualified researchers advancing the application of mathematical, computational and other quantitative methods to study biological systems on multiple levels — from single molecules to environmental influences on the genome (i.e., epigenetics).  Her research has made significant contributions to the fields of statistical genetics, genomics, epigenetic and genetic-epidemiology while advancing our understanding of cancers, mental illnesses and brain disorders. As part of her research, Dr Greenwood develops statistical methods and complex algorithms that enable researchers to integrate and manipulate diverse datasets. These tools condense complex, highly specific analysis that often takes researchers years to master into ready-to-use software applications (apps) that are improving the statistically accuracy of research findings across multiple research domains.

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.
