Professor Stephen Langdon
Interim Executive Dean - CEDPS


I joined Brunel University London in October 2019, having previously worked at the University of Reading for over fifteen years, the last five as Head of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

My research is in the area of Numerical Analysis, particularly the development, analysis and implementation of numerical methods for the solution of partial differential equations, and the application of such schemes to the solution of mathematical models arising from physical or biological processes such as acoustic or electromagnetic scattering, fluid flow, or tumour growth.

  • PhD in Numerical Analysis, University of Bath, 1999. 
  • BA Mathematics, Oxford University, 1994.
