Mathematical Biology and Archaeology Group

Welcome to the Mathematical Biology and Archaeology Research Group within the School of Mathematics and Statistics, Newcastle University.  Our inter-disciplinary research applies mathematics to model, understand and interpret biological and archaeological systems, working in collaboration with cell and animal biologists, archaelogists, clinicians and environmental scientists.  Browse our current research projects.  Our group is always happy to receive enquiries from interested and talented researchers, and for ideas for collaboration.
