Doctoral students in mathematics and statistics contribute original thought to a discipline that has developed in richness and complexity from antiquity to the present day. Students will choose to focus on a pure mathematical area such as combinatorics, discrete mathematics, geometry, logic, number theory and cryptography, analysis or even mathematical physics; or on theoretical research in probability or statistics. Or you may choose to work in industrial mathematics and operations research, with application in biology and medicine, biomedical statistics, energy or financial markets, mathematical finance, actuarial science, geoscience, medical imaging, software and computer applications, and big data analysis.
