Applied Mathematics

Learn to quantitatively tackle practical problems by formulating and analysing appropriate mathematical models.

Statistics

Learn how to collect, analyse, model and make inference from complex data.

Machine Learning

Learn to develop algorithms that encode computational statistical models that rely on inference rather than instruction to perform tasks.

Supervisors

This new programme for 2019 sees over 80 subject-expert supervisors from three research led universities drawn from the core horizontal themes of Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Machine Learning, as well application domains including Artificial Intelligenece, Data Analytics, Health and Wellbeing, Networks, Privacy and Security, Robotics, Science Education, and Smart Manufacturing.

Students will be enrolled in the Ph.D. programme of one of UL, UCD or MU with a nominal supervisory team. Within the first year, a pairing will be made with suitable research supervisor(s) for the remainder of the doctoral training experience. Regular meetings across the whole group, with active involvement from industry and enterprise partners, will ensure a significant cohort effect.
