Professor Richard Wilkinson graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA in Mathematics (2002), before doing Part III and then going on to study for a PhD in the Department of Applied Maths and Theoretical Physics (2008) also at Cambridge. He then moved to the University of Sheffield, before taking a lectureship at the University of Nottingham in 2009. In 2015 he moved back to the University of Sheffield to become Senior Lecturer, and then in 2018, Professor of Statistics.

Research interests:

Uncertainty quantification, Monte Carlo (especially Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) methods), applied statistical modelling, climate science.

Working arrangements:

I don't work on Friday.
