The division of galaxy and cosmology focuses on the emergence of cosmological structures throughout the universe. The research topics performed within the division are diverse, covering the nature of dark matter and dark energy, first light sources, large-scale structure of the universe, gravitational lensing and galaxy formation & evolution.

 We are involved in theoretical studies, high-performance numerical simulations and several ambitious observational projects (21CMA, Antarctic astronomy, LSST and the Chinese effort to join the Thirty Meter Telescope). We  expect an expansion of the division in both theory and observation and welcome new members to join the division.
