UCL Astrophysics Group
The Astrophysics Group at UCL forms part of the Physics & Astronomy Department. We are one of the largest Astrophysics groups in the UK, comprising about 80 members of academic, research and support staff.
The research areas cover massive stars, star formation, interstellar and circumstellar processes, astrochemistry, cosmology, galaxy formation and evolution, extra-solar planets, atmospheric physics and instrumentation. An overview of the group's research can be found in the most recent Departmental Annual Review.
Our group members are also playing leadership roles in many international projects, covering a time line from the present to 2020 or so. They include the Dark Energy Survey, DESI, Euclid, the Hubble Space Telescope, JWST, SPICA, Cassini, Laplace / JUICE, EChO, LOFAR, Planck, Herschel, e-MERLIN and ALMA. In addition, we are part of UCL's Institute of Origins which promotes inter-departmental research.
Head of Group: Prof. Mike Barlow
