About Us

At Lancaster we are creating a world-class Data Science research capability that sets the global standard for a truly interdisciplinary approach to contemporary data-driven research challenges

Data Science at Lancaster aims to act as a catalyst for the field of Data Science and to provide an end-to-end interdisciplinary research capability - from infrastructure and fundamentals through to globally relevant problem domains and the social, legal and ethical issues raised by the use of Data Science.

We conduct research into the foundations of Data Science together with cross-cutting theme areas consisting of:

  • environment, resilience and sustainability
  • health and ageing
  • data and society

We take a deliberately interdisciplinary approach, encouraging researchers to work across theme and discipline boundaries. Examples of current collaborative partners include BT, Google, IBM, National Health Service, Public Health England, Shell and the World Health Organisation.
