Computational Mathematics and Optimisation Research Group

We focus on the development of computational and mathematical methods to solve complex dynamic problems.

We use techniques from:

  • symbolic computation
  • exponential analysis
  • metaheuristic and stochastic search methods
  • multi-objective and constrained optimisation
  • Bayesian inference
  • differential equations

We apply our techniques in wide a range of application domains. Specific recent applications we have worked on include:

  • lung and skin cancer detection
  • reconstruction of disease transmission pathways
  • cardiac modelling
  • aircraft ground movement and runway sequencing
  • automated software improvement
  • staff scheduling and rostering
  • direction of arrival estimation in antenna design
  • fluorescence lifetime imaging
