Research in the Department of Applied Mathematics is carried out in the following five areas. (Applicants will be asked to select one or two areas of interest.)

- Control and Dynamical Systems (includes Control Theory, Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, and Signals & Images)
- Fluid Mechanics
- Mathematical Medicine and Biology
- Mathematical Physics (includes Quantum Theory, Nanotechnology and Relativity & Cosmology)
- Scientific Computing

The links above provide a broad picture of the current research activities in our department and of the research interests of departmental faculty members. Detailed information can be found by following the links to faculty members' individual websites.

Our graduate student's research is exhibited in recent PhD theses and recent Master's theses, and a sample of research posters presented at conferences.

In 2013, some Applied Math graduate students participated in an on-campus Three-Minute Thesis Competition, in which they were challenged to present their research to a broad audience. Videos of their presentations are linked below:

Aidan Chatwin-Davies - From the smallest length to the cosmos.

Amenda Chow - Control of hysteresis in a magnetic object.

Robert Jonsson - Relativistic Quantum Information - Co-winner of Faculty of Math heat.

Keenan Lyon - Graphene: A new material for biosensing.

Mikhail Panine - Inverse spectral geometry: hearing shapes.

Potential applicants may be unclear whether their background is suitable for work in the various research areas. In some cases, specialized material is required which may not have been studied earlier. We offer bridging courses to fill such gaps. These courses can be taken during the first two terms of study.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
