Research themes

Our interdisciplinary approach to research means that our academics work across a variety of fields, often collaborating across departments to develop their expertise, enhance their research and find solutions to problems not only in our immediate community, but across the globe.

Our research themes showcase our areas of expertise while staying true to this interdisciplinary approach. From developing cutting-edge healthcare technology to alleviating poverty in rural areas, by bringing together some of our best minds, we are able to collaborate with organisations, communities, and academics to create real impact.
