Mathematics of Life and Social Sciences Group
Our group applies mathematical, computational, and statistical techniques to address research questions in the life and social sciences.
Much of our research is interdisciplinary. Group members collaborate closely with researchers in biology, ecology and medicine from a range of universities, research institutes and industries. We use an exceptionally broad range of mathematical techniques, encompassing the full range of current applied mathematics.
Cellular systems and quantitative systems pharmacology
Considering both fundamental biological processes such as tissue development and cell signalling, and applications based research in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
Data science and statistical design
Expertise in the design of experiments, the development of new data assimilation methods and novel methods for the analysis of physiological time series.
Epidemiology, ecology and population genetics
In recent years at Surrey, mathematicians have worked on some particularly novel projects in ecology, epidemiology and population genetics.
Developing a range of agent-based and partial-differential equations-based models to analyse the qualitative behaviour of crime and combine with data.
