Environmental Mathematics and Statistics
Aims and objectives
The programme aimed to:
produce more life and environmental scientists who are able to use mathematical, statistical and modelling techniques when addressing environmental problems
produce more mathematicians who are working on life science or environmental problems, or devising tools and methods for them.
make mathematicians and statisticians familiar with the practicalities of environmental investigations and
give environmental scientists sufficient understanding of the power (and limitations) of leading-edge mathematical and statistical methodologies, so as to facilitate effective collaborations when tackling environmental issues and devising new approaches to currently insoluble problems.
