Research Themes

  • Observational Astrophysics

    Our research tackles some of the most important open questions in Astrophysics looking at the formation and evolution of galaxies, and the properties of the Universe itself.

  • Theoretical Particle Cosmology

    Our research in theoretical cosmology uses new theories of particle physics and gravitation to understand the evolution of the Universe from the earliest time to the present day.

  • Space and Planetary Physics

    We explore the fundamental physics of the space-plasma environments at Earth and the other planets using space- and ground-based experiments, theory and modelling.
