Exploring the molecular universe: the missing link of galaxy formation

This project aims to carry out fundamental research that will help to answer some of the biggest questions astronomers face. How did our Sun, and indeed all stars in the universe, form? How did galaxies form and evolve? The Milky Way is only one of the billions of galaxies that have evolved into an enormous number of different types over a time span equivalent to nearly three times the age of the Earth. Studying the differences in the properties of the various galaxies is central to our understanding of the universe and its contents. James Geach will study the gas content of very distant galaxies using cutting-edge astronomical facilities.
