Cosmology

Cosmology is the study of the large scale structure of the Universe, as well as its dynamics. Our group has been involved in the study and development of cosmological models, in particular to explain the accelerated phases of the cosmological evolution, dubbed inflationary phases.

For our latest developments/activities in this area, please see the listing below.

Research grant in Strong Gravity for M.Sc. holders

A call for one 1-year research grant in Strong Gravity for M.Sc. holders enrolled in a doctoral programme at Aveiro University, within the research grant “Gravitational waves and black holes as ultralight dark matter particle detectors", CERN/FIS-PAR/0024/2021, is open from 20 March to 10 April 2023.  See attached document for details (in Portuguese) or the Euraxess announcement (in English) here.

Celebration group lunch

Celebrating the recent "UA Investigador" prize and the group's many (great) guests on Mar 7th 2023. Thank you to Prof. Carolina Benone (U. F. do Pará, Brazil) for the visit and welcome to Prof. Maurício Richartz (U. F. ABC, Brazil), who is joining us for a month. And we also got the short visit of Francisco Duque, from IST-Lisbon, who presented the group seminar on Mar 8th.
