The Statistics group carries out methodological research in contemporary issues in computational and mathematical statistics, as well as investigating applications of statistics to the natural, biological and social sciences, including engineering, medical imaging, materials science, ecology, and testing theory.
Dr Eugénie Hunsicker
is interested in geometric and topological approaches to inference for high dimensional data and image data, as in data from the physical sciences and engineering. She is particularly interested in relationships amongst geometric statistics, topological data analysis and spatial statistics.
Dr Hideyasu Shimadzu
interested in the science of data, Data Science—data and modelling are the foundation of modern science. His research activities lie on the intersection of Data Science and subject matter sciences, including biodiversity, ecology, biology, public health, social sciences and engineering.
Dr Diwei Zhou
is interested in developing statistical methodology for large or highly-structured data analysis with applications to medical image analysis, computer science and engineering. She has methodological interests in Bayesian Statistics, Computational Analysis, Shape Analysis and Medical Statistics.
