Research carried out in this group falls into four categories:
Applied and Theoretical Probability: mathematical finance; stochastic analysis and diffusions on manifolds; semi-Markov processes; probability inequalities; limit theorems under dependence; stochastic optimal control; Markov decision processes; ion channel models.
Epidemic Modelling: developing and analysing stochastic epidemic models; statistical inference for infectious disease data.
Shape and Object Data Analysis: Statistical shape analysis; object data analysis,including images,functions,trees and manifold valued data; biomedical image analysis.
Computational and Theoretical Statistics: asymptotic techniques; Bayesian inference; nonparametric methods including empirical likelihood and the bootstrap; saddlepoint approximations; spatial statistics; Markov chain Monte Carlo methods; Laplace transform-based inference; inference for ordinary and stochastic differential equations.
Entry requirements: The usual minimum requirement for entry is an upper 2nd class honours degree in mathematics (or mathematics related subject) or its equivalent.
International research students need to achieve an IELTS score of 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each element.
The University runs a number of preparatory English programmes each summer and, for extra support during your degree, you can attend its free language classes. For more information, visit our Centre for English Language Education (CELE).
