Research

Our Academic Vision resonates with Scottish Government priorities, Research Council themes, and EU priority areas.

We can claim with justification, unique and valuable STEMM research activity in aquaculture, the environmental and conservation sciences, health and behavioural change and in applied technologies. Our approach is developed through rigorous empirical and multi-disciplinary frameworks given predictive power through computational, mathematics, quantitative modelling and informatics technologies. Our research aspires to be world leading, collaborative and excellent, internationally recognised for its quality and relevance. We support and pursue fundamental ‘blue skies’ research with theoretical excellence at its heart.  Working, where appropriate, with businesses and public service organisations both at home and overseas, our research has direct and positive outcomes for economy and society across a range of critical problems.

Research Strategy 2015 - 2017

Aquaculture Research

Our research brings together cross-disciplinary, world class researchers to meet the wide range of challenges faced as aquaculture grows to meet global demands. Research focuses on fundamental questions relating to strategies for sustainable aquaculture, whether in modern commercial markets or in feeding poor communities in developing countries.

Aquaculture Research

Biological and Environmental Sciences Research

‌Our research seeks to understand the fundamental processes driving the evolution and maintenance of biodiversity from the genetic to the ecosystem level, how environments and ecosystems have changed over annual to millennial timescales and to predict and mitigate the future impacts of anthropogenic change and natural hazards.

Biological and Environmental Sciences Research

Computer Science and Mathematics Research

Our research vision is to investigate novel and effective approaches to dynamic and uncertain real world problems in complex systems and environments by exploring inter-disciplinary synergies between Computer Science, Mathematics, Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Management.

Computer Science and Mathematics Research

Psychology Research

‌Our research brings together complementary perspectives to address fundamental psychological questions with activities falling under three main themes - Health and Behaviour Change, Behaviour and Evolution, and Cognition in Complex Environments.
