Research subject Cosmology, Particle Astrophysics and Strings

The University conducts a wide range of research in theoretical and experimental astroparticle physics and cosmology. Supernovae and gravitational lenses are used for distance measurements aimed at a better understanding of dark matter and dark energy.

Our research is focused on dark matter (both theory and experiment), dark energy (both theory and experiment), cosmology, string theory and general relativity.
