Astrophysics is the application of physics to uncover and understand phenomena in the universe. We carry out research in the following areas:

  • clusters of galaxies and large scale structure
  • the star-forming reservoir in the early Universe
  • the interplay between supermassive black holes and their host galaxies
  • machine learning and data-mining in preparation of the next generation of large radio telescopes
