Cavendish Astrophysics


Prof Roberto Maiolino awarded a prestigious Royal Society Research Professorship!

From the Royal Society website:

"Professor Roberto Maiolino, University of Cambridge - The chemical evolution of galaxies across the cosmic epochs

Professor Roberto Maiolino is Professor of Experimental Astrophysics and Director of the Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge. Professor Roberto Maiolino seeks to underpin the chemical enrichment of distant galaxies, of which very little is known.

Professor Roberto Maiolino will use two new cutting- edge facilities to measure the chemical enrichment of galaxies out to the earliest epochs of galaxy formation with unprecedented accuracy and datasets of distant galaxies. This will enable him to discriminate between different scenarios of galaxy formation and ultimately trace chemical enrichment all the way back to the very first galaxies."
