The members of the research group consists of permanent staff, postdocs and PhD-students, Guests as well as emeriti.

Currently in charge of the group

Joanna Tyrcha,
Professor
My research areas are statistical inference, econometrics, neuroscience, and bio-mathematics. In particular, my interests lie in: models of cell cycle, connectivity in neural networks, biological information processing, causality problems, and ion channels models.

Permanent Staff

Daniel Ahlberg,
Associate Senior lecturer
Research interests: probability theory and random spatial processes, such as spatial growth models and percolation theory.
Taras Bodnar,
Senior Lecturer
My main research interests are multivariate statistics and random matrix theory with applications to practical problems at the intersection of mathematics and finance. The main goals are to achieve a quantitative understanding of the structure of multivariate and matrix variate distributions; to develop new methods for the estimation of the covariance matrix and the precision matrix in high dimensions; to study the distributional properties of the estimated risk measures of optimal portfolios; to improve the estimation of the parameters in multivariate volatility models; to establish distributional properties of multiple testing procedures with dependent test statistics.​
Gudrun Brattström,
Senior Lecturer
My research, in close collaboration with climate researchers, concerns statistical problems related to the evaluation of climate model simulations, in part through comparison with climate reconstructions; the latter use proxy data (tree rings, ice cores...) to reconstruct past climate, e.g. temperature during the past millenium.
Tom Britton,
Professor
My research interests lie in applied probability models and statistical inference for such, in particular epidemic models, networks and applications towards genetics and molecular biology including phylogenetics.
Maria Deijfen,
Professor
My research interests are within probability theory, with emphasis on discrete spatial structures and random graphs. During the last decade there has been a large interest in random graph models aimed at describing various types of complex networks.
Michael Höhle,
Senior Lecturer
My research interests center around biostatistical methods and the modelling and monitoring of spatio-temporal stochastic systems. The motivation and application of these methods originates mainly from infectious disease epidemiology, but I have a general interest in statistical consulting and statistical software development.
Ola Hössjer ,
Professor
In my research I like to work in the intersection between inference theory, probability theory and various applications of statistics, in particular genetics, but also insurance mathematics and signal processing.
Andreas Lagerås ,
Adjunct Professor
I'm a financial mathematician at AFA Insurance, where I've also worked as a fixed income portfolio manager. I'm docent in Mathematical Statistics and work one day a week at the department as adjunct professor in Insurance Mathematics. I'm interested in probability and statistics, especially with financial and actuarial applications.
Chun-Biu Li ,
Senior Lecturer
Research interest: Develop and apply methods of statistical analyses to understand the working and physics of biological systems.
Mathias Lindholm ,
Senior Lecturer
Mathias Lindholm är lektor i matematisk statistik vid Stockholms universitet. Han har tidigare arbetat inom försäkringsbranschen som aktuarie (liv, sak och riskmodellering), kvantitativ (finansiell) analytiker samt riskanalytiker.
Filip Lindskog ,
Professor
Filip Lindskog är professor i försäkringsmatematik vid Stockholms universitet. Han har tidigare ansvarat för utbildningen i finansiell matematik vid KTH och är medförfattare till boken "Risk and Portfolio Analysis: principles and methods". Filip forskar inom försäkringsmatematik, finansiell matematik och extremvärden och stora avvikelser för tungsvansade modeller.
Esbjörn Ohlsson,
Adjunct Professor
 
Dmitrii Silvestrov ,
Professor
 
Martin Sköld ,
Senior Lecturer
I work on a broad range of problems in applied, theoretical and computational statistics. My theoretical and methodological advances have mainly been in non-parametric curve estimation, statistical inference for stochastic processes and Markov chain Monte-Carlo algorithms. Applied work have focused on the biosciences, ecology in particular.
Rolf Sundberg ,
Professor
Main research projects February 2016: 1. Statistical methodology for palaeo-climate research (cooperation w. staff from the Bert Bolin Centre at SU; co-supervising PhD student Katarina Fetisova) 2. Work on book manuscript "Statistical modelling by exponential families".
Pieter Trapman ,
Senior Lecturer

Abid Ali Lashari,
PhD student
My research work is focused on using mathematical approaches to provide some insight into real life phenomena associated with the mathematical modeling of infectious disease.
Abhishek Pal Majumder ,
Postdoc
My research interests are in applied Probability and theoretical statistics. In Probability it mainly concentrates around understanding long time behaviours of stochastic dynamical systems that include system of biochemical reaction networks, measure valued processes etc. In statistics I am interested in higher order asymptotics of distributional inference.
