About WDSI

Innovative science in a data-rich world

The Warwick Data Science Institute (WDSI) builds upon the great power and range of Warwick's research expertise across the Mathematical Sciences, to promote innovative research collaborations that will help shape the future of data analysis.

WDSI brings together not only the huge strengths of Warwick's Departments of Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, but also the wider community both at Warwick (researchers from many departments, with interests ranging widely from genomics to business analytics) and internationally through the extensive WDSI programme of research workshops and visitors.

The primary focus of WDSI is world-leading research, including the development of novel mathematical, statistical and computational approaches to the acquisition, management and analysis of "big data". Warwick is a founding partner (with Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford and UCL) in the Alan Turing Institute for data science.

Innovative education and research training

Through its roots in some of the most prominent academic departments ar Warwick, WDSI is also strongly connected to high-quality education in the broad area of Data Science, ranging from undergraduate to PhD level:
