Cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics with gravitational lensing (MPRG)

The group studies the dark cosmos: (i) Dark Energy, which is the driving force behind the accelerated expansion of the universe; (ii) Dark Matter in galaxies and the effect it has on their formation and evolution; (iii) and Supermassive Black Holes at the centres of galaxies, to see how they and their host galaxies co-evolve.  As tool they are using strong gravitational lensing, the bending of light by mass distribution that creates multiple images of background sources.
