The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has a strong research community of academics and postgraduate students with research groups working in the areas of Algebra and Number Theory , Geometry , Mathematics Education  and Statistics . Conferences  are regularly held by the Department and our Colloquia  series runs from September to May each year.
The Department's research interests  include topics in Analysis, Group Theory, Differential Geometry, Combinatorics, Coding Theory, Cryptography, Statistical Modelling in Ecology and Environmental Sciences, Harmonic Analysis, Measure Theory, Bayesian Modelling, Statistical Computing, Classical Function Spaces, Number Theory, Group Representation Theory, Stability Theory, Mathematics Education, Involutions, Value Distribution Theory, Algebraic Geometry, Complex Analysis and Algebraic Topology and there are many areas of potential postgraduate research  in addition to our taught postgraduate programmes . The Departments' postgraduate coordinator is Dr. Stefan Bechtluft-Sachs.
