We are a top-class group of researchers with interests in a wide range of areas of theoretical and practical computer science.
All our academic staff are research active, working with a team of post-graduate and post-doctoral researchers and a lively population of research students.
See our directory of staff and research students.
Our research focuses on core themes of theoretical and practical computer science:
- Artificial intelligence and symbolic computation including constraint programming, computational algebra and computational logic and natural language processing, image processing and robotics.
- Computer systems engineering including software architecture cloud computing and next-generation internet, programming models for distributed systems, pervasive systems and data linkage analysis.
- Human Computer Interaction including pervasive and ubiquitous computing, input and output technologies, intelligent interactive systems and visualisation.
- Programming languages with an emphasis on type systems and parallelism in functional programming languages.
The School is a member of SICSA - The Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance.
We have research support from a range of funding bodies including the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the European Commission and Industry.
All School publications are published via the University of St Andrews Research Portal.
