Research is a core activity in the department, and it covers a broad range of scales from the molecular to the complex systems level. We aim to create pioneering breakthroughs in science and technology and seek solutions to Grand Challenges (such as energy, materials, sustainable manufacturing, health and environment), based on significant advances in fundamental knowledge. To this end, we collaborate widely with other departments in UCL
Engineering, Chemistry and beyond, as well as various academic and
industrial research groups.
Our research is divided in to the 5 Research Groups and 2 research centers below:
