Our academic statisticians carry out much collaborative and applied statistical research. Recent examples include: mixture modelling in imaging; robustness of methods for analysing longitudinal data to misspecification of covariance matrix; confirmatory factor analysis of Gulf War data; point pattern analysis of neurons; fMRI time-series modelling; multi-level modelling of violent incidents; cluster analysis for psychological measurement scales.
Graduate research students work closely with their supervisors and enjoy regular meetings to discuss their progress. They also liaise with other members of staff with relevant research interests and are encouraged to attend and participate in departmental research presentations and other Institute seminars. There is a full induction for new graduate students on commencing their studies. Each full-time graduate research student is allocated their own workspace and computer; facilities for part-time students can be arranged according to their needs.
Training courses run by the department, the Institute or through the Graduate School can be utilised as required to provide training in a wide variety of topics, from transferable skills to academic areas directly relevant to the student's thesis.
