Research & Impact

Research in the Department of Mathematical Sciences is organised into a number of groups interacting with each other and other departments.

We are also members of several scientific networks, addressing a sweep of topics from the mathematics of climate change to geometric group theory. Further broadening our perspectives, we welcome academic visitors to our department, for periods between a week and a year. Most such visits are unfunded (though hospitality will be offered!), but we also have a limited number of Fellowships available as part of our overall investment in excellence.

Research Excellence Framework - REF2021

In the most recent Research Excellence Framework report (REF2021), 96% of the Department's research output was assessed as internationally excellent (3*) or world-leading (4*). Our submission to the REF2021, including Impact Case Studies, can be found on our dedicated website.
