Our research

Mathematics of distinction and longevity.

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.

Research strengths

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.

Impact and engagement

We recognise that the impact of mathematics is often indirect and tends to be long-term. However, we aim to create the potential for research impact by facilitating connections and ideas exchange across the University and with industrial partners and policymakers.

We have built strong collaborative relationships with diverse organisations such as Fera Science, Unilever, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science and the Office for National Statistics.
