Research Theme Champion: Dr Philip Lucas (School of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics)
Our researchers work in diverse areas of Astrophysics, Atmospheric Physics and Mathematics, including both pure and applied research. We aim to expand human knowledge on scales ranging from microscopic quantum physics to the large scale structure of the universe, taking in planetary systems around other stars along the way.
Our research in atmospheric physics and light scattering also brings practical benefits in areas such as climate modelling, measurements of airborne pollution and bio-particle detection. Our work in astrophysics with very large, multi-dimensional data volumes helps to drive advances in computer science, visual representation and informatics.
