The Numerical Analysis & Data Science group in the Department of Mathematical Sciences began when Alastair Spence (in 1973) and Ivan Graham (in 1985) came to Bath. It currently has expertise in all areas of numerical analysis and is one of the largest in the UK, and has recently expanded to include a significant interest in data science, including inverse problems and machine learning.

We teach a full range of undergraduate and postgraduate units. Our research is internationally recognised and we regularly run workshops and conferences including the long-standing seminar.

We welcome applications for PhD studies, and are always happy to discuss research problems in all areas of scientific computing, data science, and numerical analysis!
