The world is drowning in data,
yet thirsty for information
and the synthesis of
knowledge into understanding....

Biomathematics is a multidisciplinary research field at the interface of mathematics and biology/life sciences. The Biomathematics division is part of the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
We are a dynamic research group led by Prof Cang Hui, a SARChI Chair in Mathematical and Theoretical Physical Biosciences. We work at the interface between mathematics and biology. Our interests lie in proposing models and theories for explaining emerging patterns in whole-organism biology, namely ecology. Ecology studies biodiversity in its variety and complexity. As ecological processes are highly complex and adaptive, we rely on the simplicity of mathematical language to build models and theoretical frameworks.
