We research a wide range of areas including theoretical computer science, human-computer interaction, information sciences and software systems. 

Our world-class research looks at many different areas including:

  • artificial intelligence
  • computer security
  • combinatorics
  • data analytics
  • data-intensive systems
  • health informatics
  • human-computer interaction
  • information architecture
  • information seeking behaviour
  • information policy
  • interactive information retrieval 
  • mathematically structured programming
  • mobile interaction
  • software engineering

Our research projects are funded by a wide range of organisations including the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Economic and Social Research Council and the European Union.

We also work with a large range of industry and public sector partners including Microsoft, Rolls Royce Marine and the European Space Agency.

All of our research is carried out through six different research groups.

Computer Science Education Research Group

The Computer Science Education Research Group conducts research and undertakes scholarship activities on Computer Science learning and teaching, pedagogy, and innovation in higher and professional education. The group members have expertise in: the use of Artificial Intelligence in education, programming and learning difficulties, assessment and feedback, project supervision models, cyber security education, gamification and visualisation in education, blended and hybrid learning, student monitoring techniques, and improving programming education/understanding.

We welcome UK and international PhD students with diverse and interdisciplinary interests who are interested in Computer Science education.
