Statistical Laboratory


The Statistical Laboratory is located in Pavilion D of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. It is sub-department of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, which in turn is part of the Faculty of Mathematics. We have about 35 members, made up of permanent staff, post-docs, and post-graduate students. Our interests cover a broad range of statistics, probability and operational research.
