ASRU team
ASRU Leadership Team

The Applied Statistics & Risk Unit (AS&RU) is a research and consultancy unit within the Statistics department at the University of Warwick. AS&RU has a remit to encourage and co-ordinate external partnerships — with academic and non-academic (industry, government, non-governmental organisations) partners alike — which give rise to new research avenues and enable the early applications of theoretical, methodological and algorithmic developments.

A non-exhaustive list of what we can provide support for is given below:

  • Statistical modelling
  • Uncertainty handling in complex systems
  • Expert witness services
  • Expert judgement and structured elicitation
  • Design of experiments
  • Bayesian decision support systems
  • Industry-Academic PhD projects (iCaseLink opens in a new window)
  • Masters-level data analysis projects for industry and external partners

Our team is highly experienced in collaborating with external partners and delivering on projects in a timely manner.

We also have experience in facilitating external collaborations with other members of the Warwick Statistics department (see full list of current staffLink opens in a new window).
