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.
