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.

- Sep. 25, 20172017 Applied Mathematics Doctoral Award
The 2017 Applied Mathematics Doctoral Award has been given to Ali Mahdipour Shirayeh. The award, which is valued at $200 CAD, is given annually to a departmental nominee for the Alumni Gold Medal and the Governor General’s Gold Medal. Dr. Mahdipour Shirayeh defended his PhD, entitled “Evolutionary Dynamics of Cancer: Spatial and Heterogeneous Effects”, in January 2017, and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Princess Margaret Cancer Center, University Health Network in Toronto.
