Mathematics and physics research
Our collaborative research community has active links across the School, the wider University, and with academic institutions and industrial organisations in the UK and worldwide. Our research focuses on fundamental theory and the big questions of time and space, as well as finding the solutions which will improve lives in areas such as healthcare, green energy and big data.
In the latest UK Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), Surrey has risen 12 places since 2014 to 33rd in the UK for our research quality. We are also top 20 in the rankings for our research outputs.
An interdisciplinary research centre with strong links with biology. Working on theoretical problems at the forefront of research across fundamental physics, mainly exploring the behaviour of open quantum systems in various environments.

Writing about all aspects of mathematics research in the School.
We blog about science that interests us, and life and teaching.
We pride ourselves on our ability to connect pure science with technology, life sciences with medicine, and to work across the boundaries between disciplines. We have many national and international collaborations with companies, other universities and research institutes.
The Advanced Technology Institute brings together electronic engineers, chemical process engineers and physicists to solve grand challenge problems in quantum information, nanotechnology, energy and advanced materials.
A multidisciplinary centre bringing together researchers who develop and deploy mathematical and computational methods to advance research and practical applications in the life sciences and medicine.
Our Leverhulme Quantum Biology Doctoral Training Centre is the first of its kind in the world. Training a new generation of scientists who can operate across the boundaries of biology, chemistry and quantum physics to pioneer research in quantum biology.
