The Digital Centre


The Computational Science Research Group and associated members across the University of Hull form the Digital Centre, with core research interests including: complex systems; graph theory; domain-specific programming languages; agent-based modelling; and enabling technology such as supercomputing. The Centre's Director, Professor Ken Hawick, leads the team with Dr James Walker, Dr Nina Dethlefs, and Dr Alex Turner.

The Digital Centre's runs a number of Enterprise and Research and Software Development projects, with current main activities including:

"There are opportunities to work with us through: contract research and development; collaborative grant funded work; student work placements or student research internships or postgraduate study."
