Explore the most challenging problems in astrophysics through theory and computation

How do galaxies and cosmological structures form and evolve? What is the nature of dark matter? Can we understand the reionization of the intergalactic medium? How can deep learning better our understanding of astrophysical phenomena?

The Computational Astrophysics Research Group lead by Prof. Brant Robertson in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz leverages sophisticated numerical methodologies and hardware technologies to help answer these important outstanding questions.
