Amy Wilson is a researcher in statistics in the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. She previously worked as a research associate in the quantification of uncertainty for large scale energy models at Durham University. She has an MMath from the University of Cambridge and a PhD from the University of Edinburgh in statistical modelling for the evaluation of forensic evidence.

Research interests

Amy Wilson is an applied statistician interested in decision-making under uncertainty. She has worked mainly on applications in energy and forensic science. In energy, she is interested in statistical methodology for long term planning of the electricity system. This has included work on modelling extremes for assessing the risk of electricity shortfalls and modelling uncertainty in large scale computer models. In forensic science she is interested in statistical modelling for the interpretation of forensic data and has developed techniques for the analysis of drug traces on banknotes.
