"My research focuses on the interface between theory and data in human and animal behaviour. My interest areas include decision-making, motion and collective self-organisation. Using Bayesian methods, machine-learning and agent-based models I aim to uncover how and why animals and humans behave the way they do."

Applied Mathematics

Applied mathematics

Much of applied mathematics is concerned with solving challenging equations that describe interesting and important problems, and there is ample scope for a wide range of appealing PhD topics.

As well as conducting research in the foundations of applied mathematics, the Department also undertakes research in a variety of multidisciplinary settings. It has excellent connections with many other disciplines, including pure mathematics and statistics within the School of Mathematics, and astronomy, biology, computer science, earth sciences, engineering, environment, food science and physics within the University, as well as links with industry.
