"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."

Pure Mathematics

Pure mathematics

The Department of Pure Mathematics is one of the largest and most active centres for pure mathematics research in the UK with research groups of international standing in four of the most vital areas of mathematics.

There is extensive interaction between these research groups, and with the Departments of Applied Mathematics and Statistics.

The Department hosts the Leeds Algebra Group and Leeds Logic Group which are recognised as ‘Gold Peaks of Excellence’ within the University. These peaks reflect the wealth of expertise, external recognition and reputation for international excellence and world-leading research in the Department.

There are weekly seminars for research students across algebraic, geometric, functional analysis and logic disciplines. As well as these weekly seminars there is a less specialised Departmental Colloquium which meets once or twice a term, and a weekly seminar course each year in each of the four major research areas.
