Professor Chenlei Leng (冷琛雷)

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

I joined Warwick in 2013 as Professor of Statistics. Previously I held regular and visiting faculty positions at Peking University, University of Munich and National University of Singapore. I 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 don't have postdoctoral experience.

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

During 2016-2017, I chaired the Research Section Committee of the Royal Statistical Society.
