Cosmology and extragalactic astronomy at the OU focuses on the star-forming galaxies, active galaxies and strong gravitational lensing, addressing fundamental questions about the evolution of galaxies and their dark matter haloes and AGN jets. We have a strong record of promoting the visibility of graduate students in major international consortia. We have leadership roles in many major international legacy surveys on ground-based and space-based observatories, including Herschel, JCMT, eMerlin, AKARI and other telescopes, as well as being members of the LOFAR-UK consortium, members of the UK Large Synoptic Survey Telescope consortium, user-shareholders in the 11-metre Southern African Large Telescope, and co-Is on Planck and the future ESA Euclid and JAXA/ESA SPICA missions. We are involved in planning for next-generation instruments and observatories. The research group is part of the Astronomy Discipline at the OU; astronomy is one of four discipline areas in the department, supported by the faculty laboratory and computing infrastructure.
