Probability plays a fundamental role in our understanding of the world, and has broad applications throughout science and engineering. It is also a core mathematical discipline in its own right, with many beautiful connections to other parts of mathematics. 

The School currently has a wide range of research activity in probability and its applications.  Further details can be found on individual staff pages.
