We prove theorems, create new structures and solve problems of intrinsic and longstanding mathematical worth.
Our vision is to advance mathematical knowledge and understanding through world-leading research that generates impact.
We aim to create new applications and techniques that continue to have positive outcomes for scientific and human utility.
Our research activities are structured through our seven research groups. We pride ourselves on the lack of boundaries between subject areas, which encourages a culture of collaboration in our Department.
