Cosmologia e Astrofisica

Le attività del gruppo si svolgono lungo le seguenti linee di ricerca:
1. Prime stelle e reionizzazione cosmica
2. Cosmologia con la riga a 21 cm dell'idrogeno neutro
3. Studio dell'evoluzione dei buchi neri super-massicci e delle loro galassie ospiti
4. Studio delle galassie ad alto redshift e delle loro proprietà interne
5. Mezzo intergalattico
6. Astrofisica con i raggi gamma
7. Onde gravitazionali
