All academic staff within the School of Mathematics are actively involved in research. The desire of our teaching staff to break new ground is what makes studying here such a tremendous learning experience for undergraduates and postgraduates alike.
The priorities of the school's research efforts are:
Members of the school collaborate with colleagues from a variety of disciplines at Bristol, including physics, social sciences, biology and medicine, as well as with external organisations, such as Hewlett Packard, QinetiQ, Unilever, Barclays Bank, the Government Communications Headquarters and National Air Traffic Services.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 has ranked Bristol among the UK’s top research universities. Bristol Mathematics has confirmed its position in the elite handful of UK mathematics departments, together with Cambridge, Imperial, Oxford, Warwick. Our impact submission ranks second among all Russell Group departments.
The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research brings together high-calibre mathematicians from various disciplines to conduct theoretical research into key areas of mathematics.
