Computer Science

The Department has world leading researchers in algorithms and complexity, bioinformatics, distributed and global computing, machine learning, software language engineering and type theory. The theories we develop lead to the design and building of novel practical computing systems, and their application in the real world. This is an essential element in validating our theories. It also generates opportunities for collaboration with industry and other institutions. Together with the Information Security Group, we able to offer a full spectrum of activity from cloud physical infrastructure and middleware through to machine learning-based data analytics and information security, which is generating many approaches from potential users and collaborators. In the past ten years, the Department has received more than £4 million in research funding, from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the European Union, the Department of Trade and Industry, the Royal Society, the British Council, the Nuffield Foundation, and from our broad network of industrial and government collaborators. All this creates a vibrant research environment in which research students can learn and develop their own research profile under our guidance and supervision.
