Cavendish Astrophysics


Group statement

We work on radio experiments for m- and cm-wave radio astronomy with a special focus on the study of the cosmic history of Hydrogen (eg. Cosmic Dawn and Epoch of Re-ionization). We also develop sensor systems for different radio instruments: SKA, HERA, RAPID. Our research activity is currently focused on the development and scientific exploitation of a Global EoR experiment (REACH: Radio Experiment for the Analysis of Cosmic Hydrogen) and the design of hardware as well as algorithms and electromagnetic modelling for cm-wave radio astronomy and communications.
