The group of Celia Greenwood develops statistical methods for the analysis of high dimensional data, particularly genetic and genomic data. Domains and topics are diverse, and include
- Methods for analysis of epigenetic data, particularly DNA methylation patterns.
- Linking genetic variation to phenotypes: e.g. how is genetic variability identified through sequencing studies or genotyping plus imputation linked to disease traits and phenotypes.
- Methods for dimension reduction, with applications in many areas including neuroinformatics
- Methods for clustering and networks, with applications in cancer genomics and the analysis of the microbiome
She is an integral part of the Genetic Epidemiology group at the Lady Davis Institute and the Segal Cancer Centre, and is co-Director of the Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health, which develops and implements methods for integrating behavioural phenotypes, epigenetic, genetic and brain imaging data.
