About the CDT
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral training in Distributed Algorithms (CDT) in collaboration with STFC Hartree, IBM Research, The Alan Turing Institute, and 20+ project partners will train 60 PhD students who will possess the expertise to meet the world's pressing need for highly-trained data scientists. Meet our students.
Our vision is that our graduates will become future leaders in Distributed Algorithms meeting the needs of government, academia and industry.
To achieve the vision, each PhD student works with a project partner to ensure the research is grounded in real users needs, maximising its impact while also enhancing graduates employability.
Driven by the needs of our industrial and governmental partners who have so far committed £3.7m of cash and in-kind funding, the CDT PhD's explore challenges of: the defence and security sector to better protect the world's population from threats posed by, for example, organised crime; and the manufacturing sector by enhancing industrial organisations’ ability to develop and deliver high-performance products and services through the use of data-driven optimisation.
Have a look at our current PhD projects.
The CDT is funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the University of Liverpool and our project partners.
