Mathematics & statistics

Our research covers a wide range of applied maths and statistics, with emphasis on the modelling and analysis of problems in industry, business and society.

Mathematics and statistics are at the heart of all scientific, biomedical and engineering disciplines, and we have a strong international reputation in the use of modelling and analysis to solve many problems relevant to industry, business, public health and wider society.

We work with researchers in other universities, from other disciplines and from industry, business and government sectors, across the UK, Europe, India, China and the USA.

We have major research themes in the areas of: industrially-relevant mathematics; numerical algorithm development; statistics for the health sciences; epidemiological modelling; modelling of marine systems; the development of novel techniques for stochastic and network analysis.

Strathclyde researchers have been in the forefront of modelling and statistical analysis of COVID-19 outbreaks in Scotland, in the UK, and worldwide.
