Organisation profile

Several developments over the last decade have pushed Statistics into the heart of science, commerce, and policy-making: new techniques, more powerful computers, and of course much more data. In the Institute of Statistical Science we cover the whole spectrum of modern Statistics, from theoretical methods designed explicitly for multi-core computers and big data-sets, to providing planning and time-critical advice to policymakers concerning civil emergencies.

We have world-class theoretical expertise in Monte Carlo methods, Time Series analysis, and big-data algorithms, and applied expertise in Bioinformatics and Earth & Environmental Sciences. We have ongoing collaborations with both the public and the private sector, as well as with the extremely strong Science and Social Science happening within the University.  Finally, we benefit from being part of one of the UK's top Schools of Mathematics, which has a dynamic and collaborative research culture.
