Modelling the cosmos

Join world-renowned physicist Claudia Maraston and dive into the world of Stellar Population Models. These models observe the spectro-photometric and mass properties of galaxies, and have found widespread applications in astrophysics and cosmology, providing us with the tools to study galaxy formation and evolution both theoretically and through data interpretation. Join us as we unravel the secrets of the cosmos and explore the frontiers of our understanding of the Universe.
