Our research in statistics is at the interface between methodology and applications, because developing statistical methods which are of practical use is essential to influence the discipline of Statistics, as well as other scientific disciplines, policy makers and industry.

Research themes:

  • High-dimensional multivariate statistical modelling (Dr Griffin, Dr Liverani)
  • Applied Bayesian statistical inference (Dr Coad, Dr Liverani, Dr Pettit)
  • Statistical models for infectious diseases (Dr Griffin)
  • Adaptive designs in clinical trials (Dr Coad)
  • Design and analysis of computer experiments (Dr Maruri-Aguilar)
  • Complex network inference and analysis (Dr Bianconi, Dr Nicosia, Prof Latora)
  • Spatial and spatio-temporal modelling (Dr Liverani)

We have strategic links with:

as well as a range of collaborators from other scientific disciplines and from industry.

We hold a regular Statistics Seminar Series during term time.
