Physics and Mathematics for Business

Last updated May 29, 2017 by Andrew Brown

Scientists at Queen’s are helping business understand customers much better through the power of Physics and Mathematics. Jim McCann (CTAMOP) and Salissou Moutari (Censsor) have developed methods that help convert information to knowledge based on techniques used in Physics and Operational Research. They have been awarded a Knowledge Transfer Partnership grant from the Technology Strategy Board for a 2-year project with Hughes Insurance – Northern Ireland’s leading independent insurance company. Jim and Salissou work together on problems involving ‘big data’ and ‘data science’ at the University.


We are a Research Cluster of the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland. Our research interests are focused primarily on computational and theoretical physics.
