Our astrophysics research covers different areas, from the smallest scales of stars, binaries and planets to the largest scales of galaxies, clusters, dark matter and dark energy.

We aim to understand how the Milky Way and the other galaxies formed and evolved over cosmic time using a variety of observational data and numerical simulations, including the latest detections of gravitational waves from black holes and neutron stars.

Around the autumn time each year we advertise studentships and we are also keen to attract candidates for fellowships.
