Welcome

To the Nottingham Astronomy group website

The group is part of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nottingham, England. Also involved in astronomical research at the University are the Astronomy and Astrophysical Chemistry Group and the Particle Theory Group.

Our research interests span the range of extragalactic astrophysics from detailed analyses of individual galaxies to the overall structure of the Universe; this work combines observational studies of astronomical objects with detailed theoretical modelling.
