Our vision is to conduct world-leading mathematical research, advancing the development of mathematics itself and generating benefit for society and industry.
We provide an excellent environment for research and impact, in which researchers at all stages can thrive and develop.
We have extensive collaborations with mathematicians worldwide and actively pursue interdisciplinary research in many fields.
We’re a UK top 20 research department
according to the Times Higher Education’s ranking of the latest REF results (2021).
We pride ourselves on the lack of boundaries between subject areas, which encourages a culture of collaboration in our department. Our main areas of strength are represented in eight research groups.
