About us

Bath Astrophysics Group addresses fundamental questions about some of the most violent processes in the Universe, in particular black hole driven phenomena and their environments.

We exploit ground and space-based technology to collect cosmic signals from distant objects and use this information to study galaxy dynamics, star formation, accretion of matter and the roles of black holes and cosmic magnetic fields.
