We have an established track record for delivering high quality research with over 85% of research activity rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ by the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014).
Over the past seven years we have attracted grants from each of the seven UK Research Councils, government departments, the European Union and many industrial sources. We have also created the Yorkshire Computing Network to broaden our channels of knowledge transfer to industry and public sector organisations, and host community-building meetings.
Current research is carried out within two Institutes.
Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Biological systems, which covers the following research themes:
Institute for Computational and Systems Science, which covers the following research themes:
The School is home to a large community of research staff and students, with over 30 research staff and 70 research students working within dedicated research laboratories.
The Research Themes are led by senior staff who are internationally recognised leaders in their field, and each one runs an active series of research meetings and seminars.
