Professor Jacek Brodzki is Professor of Pure Mathematics at the University of Southampton.
Brodzki's research covers topological data analysis, noncommutative geometry, K- theory of operator algebras, coarse geometry, and mathematical physics. He has founded two research groups supported by grants from the EPSRC and a wide network of interdisciplinary collaborations, spanning mathematics, physics, medicine, genetics, computer science, and electrical engineering.
He led the programme “Joining the Dots: From Data to insight” which unifies topological data analysis, machine learning and statistics. He is a co-founder and Director of the Centre for Geometry, Topology, and Applications (CGTA).
Brodzki is Deputy Head of School for Research and Enterprise in the School of Mathematical Sciences.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.
You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
- Topological data analysis
- Applications of topology to medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, computer science
- Noncommutative Geometry
Brodzki is currently working on topological methods for describing disordered materials. The main idea of the work is to create novel materials with desirable physical properties while allowing a reasonable, but controlled, amount of disorder. This research is sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust and is carried out in collaboration with experimental physics group.
A parallel project investigates topological states of matter from the point of view of noncommutative geometry and K-theory. This is joint work with Higson and Stroughair (Penn State).

Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.
In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.
Update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’ and then ‘Curriculum and research description - Current research’.
Describe your current research in 100 to 200 words. Write in the third person. Include broad key terms to help people discover your work, for example, “sustainability” or “fashion textiles”.
Research Council funded projects will automatically appear here. The active project name is taken from the finance system.
Public outputs that list you as an author will appear here, once they’re validated by the ePrints Team. If you’re missing any outputs that you’ve added to Pure, they may be waiting for validation.
Contact your Faculty Operating Service team to update PhD students you supervise and any you’ve previously supervised. Making this information available will help potential PhD applicants to find you.
Brodzki's current teaching focuses on the foundations of Geometry and Topology and their many applications.
There are many possible PhD projects in topological data analysis and noncommutative geometry, so please contact Professor Brodzki if you are interested.

Brodzki is fascinated by interactions between analysis and geometry. His current work revolves around problems in noncommutative geometry arising from the Baum-Connes conjecture, including characterisations of property A, exactness of groups and their consequences.
