STOR Research at Lancaster

The Statistics and Operational Research (STOR) group is among the largest and most influential in Europe with a combined academic staff of more than 40 academic staff. We have internationally recognized expertise that ranges widely across forecasting, optimization, simulation, statistical modelling and inference, with a particularly strong focus on computationally intensive approaches.
