What triggers the growth of Black Holes?

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
It seems that all massive galaxies host, at their centres, supermassive black holes with masses of between a million to a billion times the mass of our Sun. Read more

The dynamics of small-N systems

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Most stars form in groups of dozens to a few hundred, but our understanding of the dynamics of such systems is surprisingly very lacking.  In particular… Read more

Surveying the sky for hungry black holes

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Over the next few years, a new dimension in astronomy will reach maturity. the temporal dimension. Rather relying on static "photos" of the sky, astronomers will transition to "filming" sky night after night. Read more

Exploring the environments of exploding stars

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Supernovae are the explosive deaths of certain types of stars; in particular, stars a lot more massive than our Sun. The route from massive star formation… Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. Read more

Network science quantification of space weather at earth

Research at the Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics (CFSA) focuses on plasma physics applied to the grand challenges of fusion power, space physics, solar physics, and astrophysics. Read more

Neutrino Oscillation Study and Nucleon Decay Search with DUNE

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Read more

Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF in South Dakota, USA. Read more

Spacecraft Trajectory Optimisation
