Physics and Astrophysics research

Our research in astrophysics is wide-ranging and covers observational and computational work on stars, planets, interstellar matter and galaxies. We exploit leading international facilities to obtain forefront observational data, and combine this with computer-based theoretical simulations. 86% of our research outputs being rated 3* (''internationally excellent'') or 4* (''world leading'') in the 2014 REF.
