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.

Our areas of research
Health & ecology modelling
The research conducted in this group relates directly to the University’s strategic research themes in Health & Wellbeing and Society & Policy. We are using statistics and modeling to address such important topics as the coronavirus epidemic and climate change impact on marine systems.
Continuum mechanics & industrial mathematics
The research group is focused on using various mathematical approaches to bring new scientific insight to problems in manufacturing, medicine, geology, and beyond.
The interdisciplinary work in the Analysis group includes development of new mathematical and computational tools as well as wide-ranging applications.
