Our research covers a diverse range of interdisciplinary areas, informs our teaching and has strong links with industry.
REF Results 2021
REF 2021 saw the School’s Research Environment classed as 100% ‘world leading’ and ranked #1 in the UK, with 97% of its research outputs considered ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ and the percentage awarded the highest 4* rating almost doubling since the previous (2014) exercise. Indeed, all of the School’s assessment scores increased over REF2014 values. Overall, the School of Computer Science was ranked 17th in the UK on output Grade Point Average and 19th on Research Power. The School maintains a position in the upper quartile of the UoA and is firmly established as a national and international centre for excellence in Computer Science research.
In the MRL, computer scientists, psychologists, sociologists, engineers, architects and artists collaborate to explore the potential of ubiquitous, mobile and mixed reality technologies to shape everyday life.

Our research and teaching are primarily around the application of novel optimisation and learning methods in real world applications, with a strong theoretical input.
The Computer Vision Lab (CVL) is a multidisciplinary group performing basic and applied research in image manipulation, image analysis, computer vision and related areas of machine learning.
Research within CybSec is focused upon formal and human-centric aspects of cyber security, with an interdisciplinary perspective that considers the intersection of security technology and those who use it.
The aim of the FPL is to develop simple but powerful techniques for writing and reasoning about programs, by recognising and exploiting their underlying mathematical structure.
The IMA is established in end-to-end data modelling and analysis. We are an inter-disciplinary research group focusing on the development of models and techniques for real-world and multifaceted problems in data analysis.
LUCID was founded in early 2016. It brings together a number of researchers with the purpose to advance our understanding of how to capture, model and reason with uncertain data.
The Cobot Maker Space is a university cross-faculty facility and was developed with a combination of Smart Products Beacon and strategic EPSRC funding and partners the Horizon DE Research Institute and the TAS Hub.
Cyber-physical Health and Assistive Robotics Technologies (CHART) Conducting foundational and applied research in intelligent cyber-physical systems and robotics technologies to support personalised health and well-being
(VisTAG) at the University of Nottingham conducts internationally leading research in the areas of visualization, computer graphics, and text analytics including information visualization, scientific visualization, visual analytics, natural language processing and information retrieval.
I2MT (Interactive & Intelligent Music Technologies) is a research group based at the School of Computer Science and the School of Music at the University of Nottingham. Our work focuses on developing technical innovation (new software & hardware interfaces and instruments), pushing boundaries of practice (such as robotics, AI, deep learning), understanding human computer & AI interactions in music, with the ultimate goal of enhancing human creativity.
