Carries out research of worldclass excellence in a broad range of subjects across applied mathematics and theoretical physics
The Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) is one of two Mathematics Departments at the University of Cambridge, the other being the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS). The two Departments together constitute the Faculty of Mathematics, and are responsible for the teaching of Mathematics and its applications within the Mathematical Tripos.
DAMTP has a 50year tradition of carrying out research of worldclass excellence in a broad range of subjects across applied mathematics and theoretical physics. Members of DAMTP have made seminal theoretical advances in the development of mathematical techniques and in the application of mathematics, combined with physical reasoning, to many different areas of science. A unique strength is the G K Batchelor Laboratory, in which fundamental experimental science is also performed. Research students have always played a crucial role in DAMTP research, working on demanding research problems under the supervision of leading mathematical scientists and, in many cases, moving on to become research leaders themselves. The current aims of DAMTP are to continue this tradition, in doing so broadening the range of subject areas studied and using new mathematical and computational techniques.

Critical dynamics of active phase separation: A scalar field theory approach
This thesis studies the critical properties of several systems under the overarching theme of active matter. These are systems that constantly consume energy at particle level and transform it into motion. Several field ... 
Rovibrational Dynamics of Nuclei and Molecules
We study quantized rotationvibration dynamics with applications to nuclear and molecular models. Firstly we consider small vibrations of Skyrmions (topological solitons which model atomic nuclei), developing new approximations ...
