PhD students

Research Students

We run an active PhD research programme covering all areas of research interests of our staff.

The PhD students form an active community organising their own seminar series (and social events) and many of them are active in the WISDOM group. They can choose from an extensive programme of courses including the courses of the London Taught Course Centre for students in Mathematical Sciences (LTCC).

All of our academic staff are happy to take on new PhD students. Should you be interested in doing a PhD with us, check out our research interests first to see who might be interested in supervising you, then contact them personally for further details.
