Professor Chenlei Leng (冷琛雷), Co-Director, OxWaSP CDT

I am a statistician interested in developing new methods for analysing large complex data of high-dimensional, longitudinal, networked, and correlated nature.

I joined Warwick in 2013 as a Professor of Statistics, having received a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and PhD in statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I co-direct the Oxford-Warwick Statistics Programme (OxWaSP), the EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generational Statistical Science.
