Welcome to the School of Physics and Astronomy
Physics is the most fundamental of the sciences. It is concerned with understanding the laws of nature and in applying this knowledge to unlock the secrets of the Universe, to understand the world around us and to spawn new technologies.
Matthew Allen, a PhD student here at the School of Physics and Astronomy has been recognised by world-leading company Elsevier for his creative and personal approach to communicating astrophysics research to the public.
