We run cross-disciplinary seminars and discussion groups aimed at sharing expertise, learning new techniques for collecting data, understanding data or combining data with models.

Past seminars

Pattern search design informed by fitness landscape analysis

This seminar took place on Friday 28 January 2022.

A mathematical investigation of community boundaries on urban crime and policing and data-driven analysis of complex dynamical systems talks

This seminar took place on Friday 17 December 2021.

Hybrid models for multiscale reaction-diffusion dynamics

This seminar took place on Friday 26 November 2021.

Integrating cell mechanics and cell mechanosensing, and uncertainty quantification for a time-series of count data and influence network

This seminar took place on Thursday 29 April 2021.

Information networks and ecological networks and learning control policies in probabilistic Boolean networks

This seminar took place on Friday 26 February 2021.

Discussion group

Over the last two years our Data and Rhythms: Expertise, Analytics, Modelling and Simulation (DREAMS) group have met once a month. Our discussions have been wide ranging and have included:

  • Methods for the analysis of genomic data
  • Identifying 24 hour rhythmicity in short time series
  • Measurement and analysis of EEG signals
  • Analysing sound
  • Novel sensors for collecting data
  • Nonlinear time series techniques
  • Mathematical modelling
  • Music motivated by physiological time series.

Join us

If you would like to give a presentation about some research you are doing, discuss a new technique you are using or have some data that you would like to share, then please contact the academic working in the area you are interested in.
