Research Group Details



The Statistics group is interested in the application of statistical theory in a rich variety of contexts. The research interests of the group include biostatistical issues such as meta-analysis and survival analysis, food science statistics such as measuring and describing the quality of consumables, environmental applications including population modelling, group testing, drug testing in sport, bioinformatics and sample surveys. The group's link with the Statistical Consulting Centre means that there are research opportunities arising from real-world applications that are readily available.
