UCL Mathematics is a dynamic research environment: it currently hosts five prestigious career acceleration fellowships funded by EPSRC and the Royal Society. The department is a member of the UCL Institute of Origins and the UCL Centre for Inverse Problems. It also works closely with the mathematical biology group CoMPLEX and hosts the Clinical Operational Research Unit (CORU). Students benefit from our leading role in the London Taught Course Centre for PhD students in the Mathematical Sciences, enabling them to study outside the realms of their research degree. Members of the department edit the highly regarded research journal Mathematika, published by the London Mathematical Society.
