Our areas of expertise
Our specialist subject areas include theoretical galaxy formation, time domain astrophysics, stellar populations and astronomical instrumentation.
Within the Astrophysics Research Institute our research focuses on five main areas.
Galaxy formation and evolution
From population studies of dwarf galaxies up to the most massive clusters of galaxies
Time domain astrophysics
Explosive transients, type Ia supernovae, core collapse supernovae and gamma rays bursts
Computational and theoretical galaxy formation
Using state-of-the-art simulations on supercomputing facilities
