Astrophysics Research Group
The astrophysics 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.
Professor Justin Read and Professor Mark Gieles give an insight into Astrophysics at the University of Surrey.
