Research on COSMOLOGY and HIGH-REDSHIFT UNIVERSE

Cosmology1

How cosmic structures formed and how galaxies were assembled remain key open questions in the study of modern cosmology. Theoretical models of primordial star formation and observations of samples faint high-redshift galaxies and clusters are the cornerstone of our group. By combining results from observational and theoretical research, the ultimate aim is to constrain the epoch of structure and galaxy formation, and broaden our understanding of physical processes at work in the early universe. Specifically, our group is engaged in studies of:
