Our scientific research interests are tightly focused on the extra-galactic: cosmology and early universe; structure formation; clusters; galaxy formation and evolution. We address questions with a full combination of theoretical, numerical and observational techniques.

The Astronomy Centre is part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. We conduct world-leading research and also offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

We welcome PhD applications, please see the studentships page. 




We are a member of SEPnet (South East Physics Network), a partnership of six Physics departments in the South East of England, working together to advance and sustain Physics as a strategically important subject for the UK economy and its science base in the region.
