Astrophysics Seminars

The Astrophysics Group meets every Thursday afternoon. The first Thursday of each month is reserved for the Astrophysics Group Meeting and one internal seminar is held each month.

The time allocated to speakers for their presentations is about 50 minutes (plus 10 minutes for questions). Seminars begin at 2.30pm unless stated otherwise. Given the current climate, all seminars are currently done remotely. We hope to have in person seminars again soon!

Paul Kuin and Joana Teixeira are the seminar organisers. If you have any coments or would like to give a seminar please contact Paul or Joana
