Staff can be loosely allocated to three groups: Pure Mathematics (PM), Numerical Analysis and Modelling (NAM), and Mathematics of Data and Finance (MDF), with specific and often interlinked research themes of Algebra, Algebraic Topology, Geometry, Mathematical Physics (within PM), Numerical Analysis, Computational Modelling, Model Reduction, Fluid Dynamics, Mathematical Ecology, Physical, Chemical and Biochemical Kinetics, Neuro-mathematics, Adaptive Control (within NAM), Financial and Actuarial Mathematics, Stochastic Modelling, Data Mining, Data Visualization, and Dimensionality Reduction (within MDF).

Selection of Current Research Themes

The main strategic focus of the PM group is on excellence in building the foundation of mathematical sciences, while NAM and MDF mainly focus on the development and analysis of mathematical models and techniques underpinning extensive interdisciplinary and industrial collaborations.
