Scope: Formation & Evolution of Galaxies

The main scope of the chair for extragalactic astrophysics and cosmology is to explore and understand the formation of galaxies and their evolution in different environments. We have now good evidence that within the first 1 billion years after the Big Bang, the first population of stars emerged out of the initial pool of particles and assembled in large systems – the galaxies. However, the details of the origins of stars and galaxies and how they have evolved over the subsequent 12 billion years until today are largely unknown. Our research contributes to understand these fundamental issues by investigating mass assembly, star formation, and galaxy interactions.
