# Research

Staff and postgraduate students in the School of Mathematics and Statistics collaborate in cross-disciplinary research projects across a range of subjects.

Researchers in the School of Mathematics and Statistics work in a diverse range of subject areas, in pure and applied fields. Staff and postgraduate students publish and present their work in international journals and conferences.

Staff in the School have had particular success in securing research funding from the Marsden Fund in areas such as Matroid Theory, Computability, Logic, General Relativity and Stochastic Processes.

Staff and students collaborate in cross-disciplinary projects in education, biology, physics, medicine, computer science, economics and many other areas.
