Statisics Discipline - Overview

Statistics

Head of Discipline: Professor Simon Wilson

Our research is focussed around Bayesian inference and decision theory, especially as with regard to streaming data, scalable algorithms (Big Bayes), adaptive utility and sequential decision making. Application areas include ecology, astronomy, social networks, risk and reliability.

Recent research highlights of the Discipline include developments in statistical methods to separate the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) and reconstructing palaeoclimate.
