Data Analytics

Our Data Analytics research operates at the intersection of mathematics, statistics and information technology. We specialise in analysing real-world data—‘big’ and ‘small’—to gain insights and drive performance improvements.

Data Analytics

Our Data Analytics research focuses on:

  • predicting future outcomes from historical data using machine learning
  • testing alternative business scenarios and A/B comparisons using statistical methods
  • building system and network models to optimise performance
  • supporting decision-making by generating data visualisations to reveal patterns, structures and trends.

Our work is of direct and immediate benefit to all data-driven industries, including everything from telecommunications to utilities and healthcare.
