Dr Devinder Sivia

Stipendiary Lecturer in Mathematics for the Sciences


I have taught Maths for Natural Sciences to Chemistry and Physics undergraduates for a number of years, and have published two slim tutorial volumes in the Oxford Chemistry Primers series on the Foundations of Science Mathematics (1999, OUP). I am currently teaching Maths for Physics undergraduates.

Research Interests

My research interests revolve around the application of Bayesian probability theory to all sorts of data analysis problems, mainly in the physical sciences, and I have published a tutorial book on the subject: Data Analysis - a Bayesian tutorial (1996, Second Edition 2006, OUP).
