EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistical Applied Mathematics (SAMBa)

Delivering excellent training and research at the interface of applied mathematics, numerical analysis, probability, and statistics

Who we are and what we do

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistical Applied Mathematics (SAMBa) is based at the University of Bath in the south west of the UK.

SAMBa supports multidisciplinary mathematical PhD research, often in collaboration with external partners. We host a diverse cohort of researchers in an inclusive environment who explore mathematical modelling, inspired by real world phenomena, both in abstraction and incorporating data. This research spectrum includes rapidly developing areas of mathematical sciences including, machine learning, uncertainty quantification, optimisation, high-dimensional statistics and numerical stochastic modelling.

Postgraduate researchers undertake a four-year integrated programme of research in a world-class environment with opportunities to work flexibly across disciplines. They are trained to become fearless in formulating large-scale challenges in the language of statistical applied mathematics and become leading problem solvers.
