Computer Science research

We focus on research that has the potential to have a significant impact on the computational understanding and engineering of complex systems. Our research facilitates biomedical innovations that improve the quality of life for many people. The research we conduct paves the way for world leading software engineering innovations that improve the security, reliability and quality of computing devices and services used in industry.

Our research themes

We use computational modelling and analysis to understand how neural systems work and to design engineering solutions for biomedical problems that involve abnormal or lacking neural control.

Theme Lead: Dr Charles Day
Theme Members: Professor Peter Andras, Dr Theocharis Kyriacou, Dr KP LamDr Shailesh Naire, David Collins, Dr Stas Glazewski.

We develop and analyse evolutionary systems to advance understanding of natural and artificial evolutionary processes and their capacity to generate increasingly intelligent behaviours.
