Statistical Methods in Health and Social Science

‌Research in statistics at Lancaster is focussed at the interface of methodology and application. This stems from a philosophy that strong interaction with research users is imperative for the developing new statistical ideas that are of practical importance.

Our two main areas of interest are:

  • Statistical Epidemiology and Social research
  • Quantitative Criminology

Current work being undertaken in quantitative criminology is on facial recognition, and specialists ability to correctly identify suspects from CCTV images. Members of the group are participating in a European effort to bring advanced statistical methods to forensic trace evidence to the wider forensic community, the application of statistics to the analysis of lead from bullets, and spectral methods for the identification and provenance of inks.
