Research areas include algorithms, complexity theory, computation and biology, cryptography and information security, distributed systems, numerical analysis and scientific computing, semantics, and supercomputing technologies.

This project focuses on both the technical challenges of handling sensitive data and the policy and legal issues facing data subjects, data owners, and data users.

Research includes sequential and parallel algorithms, computational problems in databases, computational geometry, design and analysis of programs and programming languages, and combinatorial, logical, and algebraic mathematics.

Centred around mathematical models of a variety of languages and logics, using techniques such as structural operational semantics, linear logic, domain theory and category theory. Strong links with Logic and Set Theory in the Pure Mathematics Department.
