Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute

Research assessment

Staff at S3RI focus on research into core statistical methodology for generic problems and their applications, particularly in the social sciences, engineering, health and medicine.

We also undertake and co-ordinate collaborative and cross-disciplinary research, across the University of Southampton, nationally and internationally, with projects involving partners including government agencies and industry. In the last UK national assessment of research excellence (REF 2021), most of our work was submitted in Mathematical Sciences, although S3RI members also contributed to submissions in other topics. Judges ranked our contributions in 12th place on both grade point average and research power.


With more than 50 academic, research and support staff, we make up one of the largest groups of statisticians in UK universities. S3RI is actively involved in several University centres including the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) National Centre for Advanced Tribology (nCATS), the ESRC Centre for Population Change, the ESRC Third Sector Research Centre and the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group.
