School of Mathematics, Statistics & Actuarial Science

National Centre for Statistical Ecology

The NCSE was set up in October 2005 as a joint venture between the Universities of Kent, Cambridge and St Andrews, with funding from the EPSRC. Its objectives include:

  • To be a Centre of international repute for the development and application of novel statistical methods in population ecology, integrating the partner Universities' research programmes and
    activities in statistical ecology;
  • To develop novel statistical methodology for the analysis of complex data sets arising in ecology and to apply these methods to a broad collection of topical and important data sets;
  • To train PhD and postdoctoral researchers to work as statistical ecologists;
  • To develop a computer software system to enable ecologists to use cutting edge statistical methodology on their own data;
  • To train end-users in the use of methodology and accompanying software developed by NCSE;
  • and to build upon and create new collaborations with relevant stakeholders.

For further information on our activities, see the NCSE website.
