Department of Statistics


Welcome to the
Department of Statistics

With the ever-increasing amount of data collected and stored by many organizations, there is great importance in comprehensive data analysis to inform decision-making. The science of statistics centers on this issue and supports leaders in financial institutions, the high-tech industry, government institutions, medical research and many other fields. Our mission is developing and teaching the quantitative theories/models and methods/algorithms needed to face the data challenges of modern society.

The Department of Statistics at the University of Haifa consists of 9 full-time faculty members. Their research interests span a wide range of disciplines: theoretical statistics, applied statistics, biostatistics, actuarial science, probability, operations research, optimization and machine learning. Faculty members have been recognized internationally for their academic research achivements.

In addition to research-oriented graduate programs in statistics and probability, the department offers graduate programs in actuarial science, logistics, and quality studies.

The department operates the Statistics Consulting Unit and  the Actuarial Research Center. 

We invite you to visit us both online and in real life, and will gladly answer your questions.
