Mathematical Sciences Research Group

The Department of Mathematical Sciences hosts the Mathematical Sciences Research Group (MSRG). The MSRG focuses on two main areas – Analytics and Applied Mathematics. Over the past couple of years our focus has been on enhancing research in the Mathematical Sciences through collaboration.

In the area of Analytics, we focus on the following:

  • Statistical Programming
  • Statistical Methodology
  • Stochastic Modelling
Academic staff who conduct research in this area include Professor Jeff Hunter, Dr Robin Hankin, Dr Kate Lee, and Dr Sarah Marshall.

In the area of Applied Mathematics, we focus on the following:

  • Computational & Mathematical Modelling
  • Financial Mathematics
  • Decision Analysis
  • Structural Dynamics
Academic staff who conduct research in this area include Professor Jiling Cao, Dr Alla Shymanska, Dr Hyuck Chung, Dr Wenjun Zhang, Dr Farida Kachapova and Dr Alna van der Merwe.

Annually the MSRG organises a number of activities:
  • Mathematical Sciences Research Day
    All Mathematical Sciences staff have an opportunity to give a short presentation on their current research activities
  • AUT Mathematical Science Seminar series 
    Academic staff are exposed to research not only within the School but also of visitors to the School
  • AUT Mathematical Sciences Symposium 
    Mathematical Sciences staff have the opportunity to invite speakers from outside AUT to deliver talks in areas where some form of collaboration may eventuate.
