Extragalactic astronomy

We carry out research in galaxy and structure formation over all cosmic epochs.

Galaxy formation

We have major roles in several large observational surveys spanning the whole of the electromagnetic spectrum that use both space-and ground-based facilities. We combine data from these surveys with observations of individual galaxies and with detailed theoretical studies of the physical processes involved in the 'feedback' of star formation and galaxy nuclear activity on the properties of their host galaxies. We also build synthetic models of stellar populations within galaxies.
