Our world-class research informs every area of modern science and enterprise – from understanding epidemics and sea-ice dynamics, to big data and abstract mathematical theory.
Within the discipline of Computer Science, we have a particular focus on computer vision, distributed and high-performance computing, machine learning, evolutionary systems, computer science education, formal methods and software architectures, data science and optimisation. Through extensive collaboration with industry over many years we have established a reputation as a leading academic partner.
Our expertise in Mathematical Sciences spans theoretical research in geometry, queuing theory, and complex systems theory and applied research in data science, statistics, stochastic modelling and operations research, modelling and optimisation. In partnership with the Teletraffic Research Centre we deliver solutions to complex practical problems.
Attracting considerable research funding from the Australian Research Council and industry, our school is advancing research in the following areas:
Whether you intend to work in research or industry, a higher degree by research can give you a competitive edge throughout your career.
