Dave Woods is a Professor of Statistics and an EPSRC Research Fellow in the Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute (S3RI) and Mathematical Sciences. His research interests focus on the design and analysis of both physical and computer experiments, Bayesian methods, and the application of Statistics to science and technology. Much of his work is interdisciplinary and involves collaborations with researchers from other disciplines, and with government and industry.

Research interests

My research interests are in the design and analysis of experiments, particularly the development of new methods and criteria for design selection and assessment under linear and nonlinear models. A particular emphasis of my work is finding efficient designs when there is uncertainty in one or more aspects of the model for the response. I develop methodology that combines theory and computation to solve problems motivated by real experiments in science and industry. Application areas include engineering, chemistry and the pharmaceutical, automotive and aeronautics industries.
