The Statistics Research Group within the Research School of Finance, Actuarial Studies and Statistics (RSFAS) brings together staff with a diverse range of interests and research agendas ranging from probability theory to applications of statistics. Our staff collaborate with researchers throughout the University and elsewhere, including those from the Mathematical Sciences Institute, the CSIRO, the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Crawford School of Public Policy, and the Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute. Many of the Group's staff have close collaborations with academics within the CBE itself, including those in the fields of Actuarial Studies, Finance, and Economics.
Further information about research interests can be found on the profile pages of the Statistics faculty.
