Our research brings together experts in maths, physics and chemistry. It also incorporates the specialisms of colleagues across the University to shed light on the mysteries of the universe.
Physics has a long-established and thriving research culture, with a mixture of experimental and theoretical research groups. Maths research is also interdisciplinary and spans the areas of pure maths, applied maths and statistics.
Our chemists conduct world-class research in fields from drug synthesis to advanced functional materials, and from imaging agents to miniaturised chemistry on lab-on-a-chip platforms. The most recent national Research Excellence Framework found 87% of our outputs to be 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'.
