Section for Statistics and Data Analysis

We are a section at DTU Compute dedicated to support other departments at DTU and external partners with skills, knowledge and consultancy within the field of statistics and data analysis including biological data.

The section is based on scientific competences within all sections at DTU Compute but has special emphasis on statistics, quantitative genomics, bioinformatics, pattern recognition and software development. DTU Compute has a long history of conducting statistical consultancy and participating in research and publication collaboration with other departments at DTU, other universities and external partners.

The basic purpose of the unit is to formalize this collaboration and contribute to even better research and public service sector consultancy at DTU. With its close connections to DTU Compute research groups in cognitive systems, image analysis and scientific computing, the section stands as a dynamic and substantial player both locally in the Danish statistics arena and internationally.

The section aims at strengthening the connection to the statistics, bioinformatics and computational biology related activities in other departments at DTU and championing the use of high quality statistics within the Public Sector Consultancy activities at DTU. The department already hosts internal and external university consultancy services in statistics.

Secretariat: Helle S.K. Sørensen
