The Department is a founder member of SEPnet, the Southeast Physics Network of physics departments, which supports vital research, teaching and development in the Southeast. The Astronomy Centre carries out world-leading research in many branches of theoretical and observational astrophysics. Our particular focus is on the early universe, and galaxy formation and evolution.
