The School's research encompasses an extremely broad spectrum of mathematics and statistics. We collaborate locally and internationally with leading mathematicians and statisticians, and with industry groups in areas as diverse as environmental modelling, biomathematics and biostatistics, computing, finance, medicine, engineering and physics. Classical and modern areas of pure mathematics such as analysis, algebra and combinatorics are also a focus.
The School attracts a high level of external research funding and provides a lively environment for postgraduate and postdoctoral study in mathematics and statistics.
Our research groups are interconnected, with frequent interactions between groups and with other schools and faculties both within and outside UNSW.
The School is actively involved in the following national and UNSW research centres:
