The Astrophysics Group in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter is one of the largest groups in the UK studying the formation and evolution of stars and extra-solar planets, using a wide variety of observational facilities, theoretical methods and numerical tools.
How stars and planets form is one of the most fundamental problems in modern astronomy.
