Mathematical and Statistical Science

Research Division for Mathematical & Statistical Science





The Research Division for Mathematical and Statistical Science is one of the six strategic research divisions in the Faculty of Science at HKU. These pages provide some basic insights into our division members and research groups, and our research activities.



The Research Division across two departments provides a unified platform for mathematical, statistical and actuarial science research with high international visibility and applications leading to impact. The members work closely at all levels, sharing an undergraduate degree, some appointments and numerous research activities.


With currently 35 faculty members (4 Chair/Endowed Professors, 12 Professors, 7 Associate Professors and 12 Assistant Professors), 15 postdocs, and 84 research graduate students, supported by outstanding facilities, we are able to pursue vigorously our strategy of maintaining research excellence in our key research areas in Mathematics and Statistics.
