Mathematical Statistics

The group conducts research developing stochastic models and statistical methods. The topics of interest are

For life science statistics see the webpage of the research group in Biomathematics and biostatistics.
Our research in various ways intersects with other research groups at the Department, in particular with the groups in Computational Mathematics, Probability theory, and Optimization.

Twitter account of the Statistics group: follow it for news on statistics seminars, job openings in Statistics and more.


We participate in the joint Statistics and Biomathematics Seminar on Thursdays, 13:15-14:15, room MV:L14. It is also announced in the Calendar of Mathematical Sciences.
