We know the the geology, we understand the maths and we can do the coding. That's an unusual combination of skills but, at Royal Holloway, we have five senior academics with this expertise and several more academics with significant experience of using numerical and mathematical models. Between us, we have 150 years of computer modelling experience, supervise a dozen postgraduate students, code in a wide variety of languages and tackle problems across the full range of geosciences.
Our projects are funded by industry and research councils but we also undertake consultancy work or develop bespoke software and our department has its own dedicated IT staff.
No other Earth Science department in the country has our critical mass and experience in quantitative modelling techniques.
