Department of Astrophysics

About Us

The Department of Astrophysics specialises in computational and theoretical aspects of astrophysics, cosmology and space sciences. Our research activities span from remote Earth observation and studies of the solar system planets, to the origin of galaxies and the large-scale structure of the universe. Our methods are primarily computational and involve massive data sets, machine learning, the development of new simulation algorithms together with the use of the world’s largest supercomputers. We use advanced data analysis and simulation techniques to construct and compare theoretical models with the observational data attained from telescopes and space satellites.
