Research Strengths

Strong collaboration is at the heart of our world-leading research in data.

Through our Centre for Data, we bring researchers together from diverse disciplines to carry out pioneering research. We aim to develop responses to complex challenges.

Multidisciplinary approach

We build strong links between:

  • methodological researchers in computing and statistics
  • those applying these new methods to transform research in data-rich application areas

Multidisciplinarity is key in what we do. We work across all Faculties to apply data science and software engineering expertise.

This helps us tackle research problems in varied areas, including:

  • healthcare
  • scholarly editing
  • smart cities
  • heritage
