About Me

Marie-Colette van Lieshout was educated at Free University and CWI Amsterdam. She started her career as lecturer at the University of Warwick before moving back to CWI as senior researcher. She also holds a chair in spatial stochastics at the University of Twente. She has published around 60 scientific papers and 5 books in stochastic geometry, spatial statistics and image analysis. Her research concerns the modelling and analysis of complicated geometrical structures such as point and object processes, random fields and tessellation models. Van Lieshout is an elected member of the ISI (International Statistical Institute). She  is a board member of the council of the Bernoulli Society and the STAR research cluster, and was a member of the editorial boards of several journals, including Bernoulli and Methodology and Computing in Applied Probability, as well as of the KWG.
