Groups in the Department

These pages describe the research undertaken in each group and are maintained by the groups themselves. They include all group leaders, and some visitors and others who are also research-active in the Department.

See end of this list for contact details for different buildings. All Department members may also be contacted via the main building.

There is also a brief introduction to the subject specialisms represented in the Department on our research by subject area page.
