Research partnerships

We are involved in a broad range and expanding number of research projects with University, government and industry partners. We are undertaking innovative new research in data science and machine learning to provide the algorithms and tools to enable data-driven discovery, developing new ways of learning and testing scientific theories.

Focus areas

We are working closely with colleagues across the University and with industry and government agencies to develop data-driven approaches and a new, collaborative paradigm for scientific discovery.

We are in discussions to broaden the opportunities offered by data science methodology with a broad range and expanding number of partners and collaborators.


Physical Science and Engineering
Within the physical sciences and engineering, we work across such wide-ranging disciplines as astronomy, energy, geosciences and water.

Some of the organisations we work with include:


Life Science and Medicine
