Camila de Souza

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a statistician and currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Shah Lab for Computational Cancer Biology at the BC Cancer Agency Research Centre. I completed my PhD in Statistics at the University of British Columbia (UBC) under the supervision of Nancy Heckman. I am originally from Brazil where I received my Master’s and Bachelor’s Degrees in Statistics at the University of Campinas. My main research areas of interest include method development and analysis of genomic data, single-cell sequencing, functional data analysis, latent variable modeling, nonparametric regression, density estimation, machine learning and big data analytics.​ For my CV and complete list of publications please visit my personal website at
