The Transient Universe

Research groups in this theme

Time domain astronomy targets a number of fascinating phenomena, such as supernovae, novae, GRBs, neutron stars and pulsars, variable stars, AGN, accretion discs, and astrophysical jets.

The Oxford Transient Universe Studies research group brings together researchers from a variety of backgrounds, focused on multi-wavelength observation, detection, analysis, and physical interpretation of time-variable phenomena in the local and distant Universe. The group is a forum of collaboration between experts from many areas including Astrophysics, Engineering, Plasma Physics, High-Performance Computing, Atmospheric Physics, Statistics and Particle Physics, on a number of large international projects in Astrophysical Transients.
