Warwick Statistics is one of the world's largest concentrations of researchers in statistics and probability, and the synergy between probabilistic and statistical research is particularly strong. The research environment is vibrant, with a large and active community of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, excellent library, computing and other research support facilities, and sustained programmes of research seminars, workshops and international visitors. There are strong research links with other disciplines both at Warwick and externally.
