Research in theoretical astrophysics. The universe displays a wonderful diversity of structure spanning an enormous range of scales in mass, length, and time. The physical character and dynamic history of many of these astrophysical systems — stars, galaxies, the entire Universe — are not fully understood. Michigan theoretical astrophysicists are working to improve our understanding of how the Universe, and the structures within it, came to be. Topics of interest include development of the early Universe, inflation, formation of galaxies and clusters of galaxies, star formation and cosmology, and dynamics of astrophysical fluids. Much work is guided by observations from optical telescopes, such as the Michigan-Dartmouth-MIT telescope, as well as several NASA missions.
