The Mathematical Modelling Research Group (MMRG) is a multidisciplinary research group translating fundamental scientific research into solving problems for society, the environment and industry. The group brings together four Principal Investigators, three from the School of Engineering and Design and one from the School of Science, as well as seven postgraduate students, across the core theme of mathematical modelling. This includes algebra and coding theory; biomedical engineering; soft sensors; Bayesian networks for maintenance optimisation; and theoretical material science modelling with applications for solar cells.
The research group is built on the scientific expertise of the PIs and uses mathematical, statistical and computing tools which will answer a diverse range of research questions, including those of IT Sligo’s Strategic Research Centres, other Recognised Research Groups and of external stakeholders.
The Mathematical Modelling Research Group is managed by Dr Leo Creedon and the other principal investigators are Dr Akinlolu Akande, Dr John Donovan and Dr Marion McAfee. The postgraduate student members are Fergal Gallagher, Kieran Hughes, Syam Kumar Ramesh Kumar, Konrad Mulrennan, Saritha Unnikrishnan, Padraig Varley and Malgorzata Wieteska.
