We have an established reputation for conducting fundamental and empirical research into the development and engineering of safe, ethical and secure computational systems for the amelioration of human life and conditions.
Computer science profoundly influences most industries – from healthcare to gaming to security. At the University of York we understand the extensive reach of computer science research and the interdisciplinary nature of many of the problems computer scientists tackle.
Our research groups
Our core research strengths reflect our expertise and understanding of interdisciplinary computer science research.
Our research centres span several departments and reflect how we collaborate with researchers from different subject areas.
These centres enable us to work across disciplines and with industry to tackle major challenges that face computer science.
Meet our Early Career Researchers
The department has a number of academic staff who are in the early stages of their careers - either within eight years of their PhD award or within six years of their first academic appointment.
University research themes
Interdisciplinary research is one of our strengths. We collaborate across the University's research themes – areas of research excellence that cross departmental boundaries. We have particularly strong partnerships within three themes:
