University of Glasgow

The Statistics group within The School of Mathematics and Statistics forms one of the largest groups of Statisticians in the UK.

Dr Claire Miller (UoG, PI)CM UOG

Claire is a senior lecturer in Statistics and an expert in statistical modelling for environmental applications.  Dr Miller develops flexible regression models to investigate relationships and changes in water quality. The models enable the identification of smooth relationships which can vary over time and space, recent work has extended to remote-sensing, high frequency data and identification of common patterns and relationships that co-vary over time.  Current research projects include: spatial and temporal trends in river networks, identification of common patterns (coherence) in small river systems and global lake water quality, downscaling approaches for insitu and remotely sensed data.

Prof. Marian Scott

MaMS Glasgowrian has been Professor of Environmental Statistics at the University of Glasgow since 2000. She has a BSc (Hons) in Statistics from the University of Glasgow, and her PhD was in radiometric dating (jointly with Chemistry and Statistics). She is a chartered statistician, an elected fellow of the International Statistical Institute and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. She is a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, and a member of the International Environmetrics Society.

Her research interests comprise environmetrics (the application of statistical and numerical methods to the observation of the environment), spatial and spatio-termporal modelling especially of river networks, uncertainty and sensitivity analysis, and radiocarbon dating. Current research projects include modelling river and sea loch water quality, the impact of climate change on eutrophication (and in general modelling trends), modelling air quality and their health impacts and Globolakes, a NERC project examing evidence of coherence in time series of images of 1000 lakes globally.
