Intelligent Modelling and Analysis Group

The Intelligent Modelling and Analysis Group was established in 2008 within the School of Computer Science to exploit new strengths and opportunities in interdisciplinary computing and intelligent modelling. 

Between 2008 and 2013 (REF2014 period), the group graduated 27 PhDs and published over 150 journal papers and 250 conference papers.

We are a highly interdisciplinary group, currently holding over £20m of external funding as Principal or Co-Investigators.
