Data Analytics

Data is being generated at unprecedented rates from engineering, medicine, the natural and social sciences, as well as within business and government.  Building on strengths in health informatics, geo-informatics, environmental data analytics and behavioural analysis, the University of Leeds is creating a world-class institute for data analytics.

The Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) hosts two informatics research centres – the MRC Centre for Medical Bioinformatics and the ESRC Consumer Data Research Centre, with the ability to store, process, analyse and visualise ‘big data’ sources.  Bringing together applied research groups alongside data scientists in mathematics and computer sciences, Leeds is opening up unparalleled opportunities to understand health and human behaviour.
