The Department of Statistics has been formed 2007 out of the former statistics research group of the Department of Mathematics. Both departments are still tightly coupled through research and teaching.
Our roots can be found in spatial statistics and statistics in education, see the research section for more details. That means we cover topics like geostatistics, environmental statistics, computational statistics and more.
Ao.Univ.-Prof. Dr. Manfred Borovcnik is head of our institute, Mag. Beate Simma is our secretary. Look at our team section for the remaining department members.
