Welcome to the News and Events page for the Department of Statistics.
Tom Leonard (1948-2023)
The department was saddened to hear of the death of Tom Leonard on December 18, 2023. Tom was one of the three founding members of staff of the Department in 1972, before leaving to take a position at the University of Wisconsin in 1980. He was influential in the development of the department's MORSE degree programme which flourishes to this day. RIP Tom.
A study led by Professor Giovanni Montana from the Department of Statistics and WMG has developed an AI tool to analyse X-rays and diagnose medical issues.
