Astrophysics Group, Dept of Physics & Astronomy

The Astrophysics Group of UCL's Dept of Physics & Astronomy is one of the largest in the UK, comprising about 90 members of academic, research and support staff. Our 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 2030 or so.  They include the Dark Energy Survey, DESI, Euclid, LSST, the Hubble Space Telescope, JWST, SPICA, Cassini, Laplace / JUICE, Ariel, LOFAR, Planck, Herschel, e-MERLIN, ALMA and SKA.

Head of Group: Prof. Serena Viti
Administrator:  Mrs Kay Nakum
