Mathematics and Statistics

Mathematics and Statistics plays a fundamental role in many aspects of modern life, providing the underpinning language and tools for a wide variety of disciplines and technologies. The department combines expertise in mathematics and statistics with expertise in the application of mathematical and statistical techniques to solving real-world problems. We aim to be a diverse department where everyone can feel at home.

At Exeter, Mathematics and Statistics students will encounter a wide variety of mathematics covering pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and computation, and will be given the opportunity to explore applications in high-impact fields including climate, healthcare and industrial challenges. We provide a caring and supportive learning environment.

Professor Seonhee Lim

Professor Seonhee Lim (Seoul National University) visited the University of Exeter in October/November 2023 as a David Rees Distinguished Visiting Fellow. The David Rees Distinguished Visiting Fellowship scheme enables mathematicians of international renown to spend an extended period of time at the University of Exeter to enable them to contribute to the University’s academic and intellectual activities. During her visit, Seonhee gave a departmental colloquium and a mathematics research seminar on “Diophantine approximation and dynamics of diagonal flow on homogeneous spaces”.

PhD Studentships
