Astronomical Surveys

Across all partners, we are interested in wide-field optical and infrared imaging and spectroscopic surveys. We use these surveys to image large areas of sky and lead spectroscopic follow up. Multi-wavelength studies across the EM spectrum increase the information content and data complexity. We exploit these data to study the static and time-domain universe: galaxy and stellar evolution, the large-scale structure of the universe, and the physical origin of dark energy.

 

We have key roles in EuclidVISTA4MOSTDark Energy SurveyDESILSST, and the Square Kilometre Array.
