We run high resolution hydrodynamical simulations to investigate the dynamics of gas in clusters of galaxies and the intergalactic medium.
Galaxy Cluster Surveys
Searching for and characterising clusters of galaxies - the most massive objects in the Universe.
Exploring the cosmological perturbations that lead to the large-scale structure, gravitational waves and magnetic fields in the Universe.
Resolving pulsation modes in hot sub-dwarf and white dwarfs to model their evolution and internal structure. We are also searching for brown dwarf planetary companions through study of evolved eclipsing binaries and pulsating stars.
Combining large datasets taken at multiple wavelengths, to maximise our understanding of the Universe.

From November 16th to November 20th 2015, young astronomers from all over the world will meet in Sèvres under Paris to hear about exciting developments in the world of radio astronomy. The school will focus on all major large ground based radio observational facilities working in the
Robert Thompson, a former post-doc of Romeel Davé, has co-authored a recent publication in Nature . While still bearing an affiliation to UWC, he co-authored the paper which takes a look at the formation of submillimetre galaxies which are the most rapidly star forming galaxies in
