Our Academic Groups

Each of our research groups bring together Faculty and Postgraduate Research students who share an interest in a particular set of related research themes, and each organises regular research activities such as workshops and guest speaker series. The remits of groups sometimes cut across the boundaries of the academic groups in the School, and across disciplinary boundaries.
