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.
In the Department of Science &
Technology Studies, Brian Balmer, Professor of Science Policy Studies, and Alex
Spelling, Research Associate in Cold War History, are working on a project: ‘Understanding Biological Disarmament: The
Historical Context of the Biological Weapons Convention’, in conjunction with Dr
Caitriona McLeish (University of Sussex), and the Harvard-Sussex Programme.
