About us

We encourage links between mathematics and application or industrially motivated problems over a range of continuum mechanics, including fluids, solids, soft matter and complex materials.

We have strong links with research groups in mechanical and civil engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, architecture and industry.

Activities include seminars in applied and interdisciplinary mathematics, MSc, PhD and postdoctoral projects. We receive funding from EPSRC, NERC and the EU.
