The St Andrews Institute for Data-Intensive Research (IDIR) does not directly sponsor or manage any research of its own: rather, we help researchers to collaborate within and beyond their home Schools in areas relating to data and computationally-intensive research. Our cross-disciplinary activities are organised around the following themes:

  • Complex systems
  • Health
  • Society
  • Environment
  • Ethics and privacy
  • Data linkage
  • Geolocation-based research
  • Data management and processing techniques
