STAR FORMATION, GALAXY EVOLUTION, ISM IN GALAXIES, OBSERVATIONAL COSMOLOGY

Our  group focuses on two broad research areas:  (i) galaxy clusters observed through the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect, and (ii) the evolution of galaxies, their interstellar matter and star formation properties. Coordinating these efforts are Dr. Kaustuv Basu and Dr. Benjamin Magnelli, respectively.

We are involved in the NANTEN2 and CCAT-prime telescope projects, in the COSMOS and APEX-SZ projects, and with the Cologne group of Prof. Schilke, we are the German node of the  European ALMA Regional Center (ARC). We have an electronic lab with expertise on microwave technology and telescope shutters. With Cologne university and the MPIfR we collaborate within the DFG Collaborative Research Center SFB965.
