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.
We are currently advertising funded PhD studentships. We are interested in applications from all our research themes, and also provide a list of specific potential projects suggested by our academics.
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.
- Networked and distributed systems including distributed and autonomic systems, middleware, network design and architecture, wireless and sensor networks, performance measurement and distributed learning environments.
- Systems engineering including software architecture and cloud computing.
- 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.
