Centre for Topological Data Analysis



Our vision is to build a two-way bridge between data users and scientists on which topological ideas and tools go to and fro testing & applications and research  & development. Our multidisciplinary team of mathematicians, statisticians, and computer scientists from Oxford, Swansea and Liverpool, provide the necessary breadth and depth of experience and expertise to drive the development and application of Topological Data Analysis (TDA) to the solution of real world problems.  Read more here.

The centre is supported by the EPSRC grant New Approaches to Data Science: Application Driven Topological Data Analysis EP/R018472/1.
