The Department of Applied Mathematics has 25 faculty members and over 70 graduate students. We offer undergraduate plans in Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics that attract outstanding students. The wide range of interdisciplinary research being undertaken in the department provides a stimulating environment for our graduate program.

The department has research programs in

- Control and Dynamical Systems (including differential equations)
- Fluid Mechanics
- Mathematical Medicine and Biology
- Mathematical Physics
- Scientific Computing

Please take a look at the short video below highlighting some of the department's research in mathematical medicine/biology and fluid mechanics.

University of Waterloo Dept. of Applied Mathematics researchers are discussing how their work helps to build tools used to tackle a broad range of problems that affect us all.

- Jan. 7, 2020Professor Kirsten Morris named 2020 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Fellow
Professor Kirsten Morris has been named an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Fellow. She is being recognized for contributions to control and estimator design for infinite-dimensional systems.

- Dec. 3, 2019New math model could lead to more personalized cancer therapies
Researchers have found a new way to use math to better treat cancer and prevent its relapse.

Using the first mathematical model of its kind, researchers at the University of Waterloo found a way to study the interactions between the immune system and different types of cancer cells.

Using their new model, the researchers found that administering different cancer therapies in a particular sequence could better target cancer stem cells in tumours, potentially leading to more personalized treatments for cancer patients.

- Nov. 28, 2019Professor Kirsten Morris elevated to IEEE FellowThe Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has elevated Applied Mathematics Professor Kirsten Morris to the grade of Fellow, effective January 2020. This honour, bestowed “for contributions to control and estimator design for infinite-dimensional systems”, places Professor Morris at the highest grade of membership in the IEEE in recognition of extraordinary achievements and experience.
