Several School members offer supervision for PhD research projects in the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
Navigate via the tabs below to view project offerings by School members in the areas of Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics and Statistics. (This list was updated September 2022.)
Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of all potential projects and supervisors available in the School.
Information about PhD research offerings and potential supervisors can be found in various locations. It's worth browsing the current research students list to see what research our PhD students are currently working on, and with whom.
There is also a past research students list which provides links to the theses of former students and the names of their supervisors.
It's also recommended to browse our Staff Directory, where our staff members' names are linked to their research profiles which provide details about their areas of research and often include the topics they are open to supervising students in.
We host PhD information sessions in the School of Mathematics and Statistics twice a year. Keep an eye on our events page for session information.
Extremal and probabilistic combinatorics:
Possible subjects therein include Ramsey theory, random graphs, positional games and hypergraphs.
Exponential sums and applications. This topic is about understanding the behaviour (e.g. extreme and typical values) of some most important exponential sums, in particular of Weyl sums.
*Yanan Fan is an Adjunct A/Prof in the School and is able to co-supervise students (not as primary supervisor)
Topics include regression to the mean, interrupted time series, meta-analysis, and population attributable fractions.
Monte Carlo and Uncertainty Quantification
Machine learning and generative modelling
Mathematics of sustainability
