Rosemary A. Bailey FRSE (born 1947) is a British statistician who works in the design of experiments and the analysis of variance and in related areas of combinatorial design, especially in association schemes. She has written books on the design of experiments, on association schemes, and on linear models in statistics.

Education and career[edit]

Bailey earned her Ph.D. in 1974 at the University of Oxford. Her dissertation concerned permutation groups; it was Finite Permutation Groups and was supervised by Graham Higman.[1]

She worked at the University of Edinburgh with David Finney and at The Open University.

She is Professor Emerita of Statistics in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London, England. She is currently Professor of Mathematics and Statistics in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.


Bailey is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics[2] and in 2015 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.[3]
