Serguei Komissarov
" I am trying to understand complex astrophysical phenomena involving powerful flows propagating with almost the speed of light. Examples include jets from black holes of Active Galactic Nuclei, winds from Neutron Stars, and Gamma Ray Bursts. Physical theory of these phenomena and their computer simulations are my main research areas. "

Statistics

The Statistics Department carries out world-leading research and made a significant contributed to the performance of the School of Mathematics in achieving top ten status in the 2014 REF. It maintains a strong profile across a wide range of areas in both theoretical and applied statistics and probability.
 
A distinctive feature is its internationally recognised expertise in shape analysis and related areas. Building on these strengths the Department has established a Centre for Statistical Bioinformatics to encourage high profile interdisciplinary collaboration.

We organise the Leeds Annual Statistics Research (LASR) Workshop, which is a well-established international event and is celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015. Over recent years, the theme of the workshop has reflected the growing departmental interest in image and shape analysis and bioinformatics. There is also collaboration with other subject areas across the University including environmental sciences, transport studies, mining and mineral engineering, biochemistry, epidemiology and biostatistics.
