Research Areas and Opportunities

Research in the Astronomy Department is centered around ground-based observational astronomy, computer simulations of dynamical and hydrodynamical motions in astronomical objects, and investigation of dark matter and dark energy. Within these broad categories can be found studies of the origin of the light elements using stellar spectroscopy, studies of globular clusters and compact objects in these clusters, experiments to determine the mass of the neutrino, and observational tests of galaxy evolution.
