Cosmology, particle and astrophysics

Home / Research / Research Areas / Cosmology, Particle and Astrophysics

As leaders in this area, we are researching particle physics universe to present day observables, and to understand the transition from linear physics to the non-linear regime during the formation of structures through observational techniques.

Research in Cosmology at ASU covers the entire history of the universe, all the way from the quantum gravity epoch at the big bang, through the particle physics phase, to atomic nuclei, then to atoms, stars, galaxies, and ultimately the large-scale structure. A major focus of the Group is to connect the particle physics universe to present day observables, and to understand the transition from linear physics to the non-linear regime during the formation of structures through observational techniques

Why Cosmology, Particle and Astrophysics at ASU ? 

Multiple nationally recognized centers and faculty from other schools affiliated with us contribute to our broad range of expertise, encompassing experimental, theoretical, and computational effort.

The Cosmology Initiative

The Cosmology Initiative at ASU bridges the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Physics Department, two academic units in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and represents a major new national program. In the next few years, we anticipate building to over 20 faculty members whose research activities include experimental, observational and theoretical cosmology, creating one of the broadest and deepest cosmology programs in the country. In true ASU spirit, our top-notch research and teaching programs are matched by our vibrant outreach activities under the banners of the Beyond Center and the ASU Origins Project.
