The Mathematics Research Lab brings together a number of mathematicians and data scientists within the School of IT at Deakin University in order to consolidate and focus their research on the areas of interest to the School and the University. It aims to create a collaborative working environment where cross-area synergies, mentorship and peer support, mutual training and collegiality thrive. The primary focus of the Mathematics Lab is on Decision Sciences, Computational Mathematics and Optimisation as well as Applied Statistics and Mathematical Modelling, in both theoretical and practical aspects.
Vision and Research Capabilities
- The lab will be active in both fundamental and industry research. In fundamental research, we will focus on advancing the theoretical study and the development of highly efficient solution methodologies in Optimization, and in novel ways to integrate Optimization and AI. The lab will also conduct research in Decision making, Combinatorial Optimization, Nonsmooth Optimization, Graph theory, Statistics, Mathematical Modeling and other mathematical areas.
- In industry research, we will reinforce existing industry partnership and engage with new industry partners in developing solutions to highly complex industry optimization problems, e.g., scheduling, routing, resource allocation, planning, timetabling, statistical interference and prediction.
