Astrophysics Research Group
Our research is focused on solving key problems in modern astrophysics: How do stars and galaxies form? What are dark matter and dark energy? How did the Milky Way form and evolve? And how did supermassive black holes form?
We seek to answer these questions by comparing multi-scale numerical simulations, from dense collisional stellar systems to the Universe as a whole to a host of observational data.
Professor Justin Read and Professor Mark Gieles give an insight into Astrophysics at the University of Surrey.
