Staff in the School of Mathematics and Physics conduct cutting-edge research in fundamental and applied mathematics and physics, ranging from pure mathematics to applied nano-science at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics. The School collaborates with top research institutions in Germany, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, and the USA.
Our astrophysics research is dealing with some of most complex structures in our Solar system, such as planetary rings around Saturn. An emerging direction is also investigation of disks around exoplanets and potential moon formations which could support life.
Students are supported and encouraged to submit papers to international scientific journals, present findings at conferences, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.
Students can benefit from specialist computational facilities, training programmes to enhance research skills, and support from dedicated academic supervisors. Students will be supported and encouraged to submit papers to international scientific journals, present their findings at conferences, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.
Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, students will spend the majority of their time in independent study and research. Students will meet with their academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, and the stage of their programme.
