Astrophysics Research Group

Our group is part of the Department of Physics. We work on key problems from the smallest to the largest scales: Formation of stars and galaxies, evolution of the Milky Way, dark matter and dark energy, formation and evolution of supermassive black holes, sources of gravitational waves.

We combine multi-scale numerical simulations with observational data to advance our knowledge of the Universe.

Our research

Our goal is to solve key problems in modern astrophysics by fostering an environment of the highest quality research and learning.
