Star Formation, Exoplanets and Stellar physics
Astrophysics at the University of Exeter is one of the largest groups in the UK studying star formation and extra-solar planets with a wide variety of observational and theoretical programmes. Our extensive research can be divided into four main areas: Star Formation, Exoplanets, Stellar physics and Galaxies and the interstellar medium. We work closely with Mathematicians to form the interdisciplinary Extrasolar planets research theme - one of the University's key research themes.
Members of the centre include internationally leading researchers; Head of Astrophysics, Professor Isabelle Baraffe, won the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award in 2010 and Professor Gilles Chabrier was honoured with the Prix Jean Ricard for 2010, the highest prize for physics in France.
