Our Mathematics research covers a wide range of pure, applied and education focused maths.

Current research interests are in combinatorial aspects of algebra, in functional analysis and its interactions with algebra and group representations, and in model theory.

In applied mathematics, members are interested in mathematical acoustics, including analytical techniques in aeroacoustics, underwater acoustics, and loudspeaker design.

We have members researching pedagogy and mathematics education, in particular fostering engagement and mathematical resilience, from primary school to HE and adult learners returning to education.
