We use computer simulations to study how dust and pebbles clumped together to form planets in the Solar System and beyond.
The Gaia satellite is an ESA mission surveying over a billion Milky Way stars, with the ultimate goal to trace the origin and evolution of our Galaxy.
Extreme astrophysics concerns the formation and evolution of black holes, neutron stars and compact binaries.
How the Milky Way formed
We aim to produce reliable spectroscopic and photometric observations against which models of galaxy formation can be accurately tested.
The study of stellar atmospheres is the basis for all stellar spectroscopy. Our research aims at understanding the physical processes underlying stellar spectra.
We use computational models to study the stability, survivability and habitability of extra-solar planetary systems.
