Research groups

Stochastics and statistics

We develop and apply methods in probability theory, mathematical statistics, and algebra related to applications in information networks, data science, and natural sciences. The main research themes are random graph dynamics, asymptotic statistics, and mathematical physics.

Teaching

We teach courses in probability and statistics at all levels. Many of the offered MSc courses are eligible as a basis for an SHV degree in insurance mathematics. PhD education in stochastics and statistics is coordinated by the Finnish Doctoral Education Network in Stochastics and Statistics (FDNSS).
