Mathematical & Physical Sciences
The Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences
encompasses the logical, experimental and mathematical study of our
Universe. The Faculty is an internationally renowned centre for both theoretical and applied research and a centre of educational excellence.
Front-line research feeds directly into our teaching programmes, and our students benefit from access to first-class laboratory facilities.
Dr Christina Pagel, Reader in UCL’s Clinical Operational Research Unit (CORU) and the UCL Department of Applied Health Research (DAHR), has been awarded a Harkness Fellowship in Health Care Policy and Practice by the Commonwealth Fund.
