Extragalactic Astrophysics Laboratory

Welcome to the Extragalactic Astrophysics Lab! We are part of the Physics Department of UNIST in Ulsan, Korea. We are studying the formation and evolution of the galaxies by observing and modeling them across cosmic time. We are seeking to answer the following large-scale questions:

  • How does the Universe form and evolve?

  • How do galaxies and black holes assemble?

  • What is our own place within the Universe?

We are actively looking for graduate students and undergraduate research interns who are interested in extragalactic astrophysics. Projects include studies related to the formation of the first galaxies in the universe, star formation within galaxies and the chemical & morphological evolution of galaxies. Read more about these projects in our research section.
