Gravitation and Cosmology

The group's interests are in Cosmology, Gravitation, Black Holes and Quantum Gravity. It seeks to understand how the universe expands, why its expansion is accelerating, the classical and quantum behaviour of black holes, and the fundamental quantum theory of space and time.
