Our main research focus is Astronomy and Astrophysics, encompassing both the observational and theoretical (computaitonal and simulations) approaches. The Department of Physics & Astronomy has a good history in this regard and we plan to build on the past successes.
Our research group though focused on Astronomy and Astrophysics, require very high level of computation and numerical analyses. Thus, staff members and post-graduate students of Computer Science and Mathematics (with needed skills), will be able to join the group.
Publish a minimum of 4 research papers in high-impact journals (like Nature, Science, ApJ, A&A, MNRAS, PASJ, AJ).
II. ALMA, VLA, SMA archive and PI (J. O. Chibueze) data available
III. MoU with the Astrophysics Group of Kagoshima University and collaboration with Astronomy group of Tokyo University (both in Japan)
IV. Availability of high-spec Mac computers (purchased by Prof. Chukwude & J. O. Chibueze) for data reduction.
V. Proven record/experience of publishing in our target high-impact journals
• Training of members on the research techniques
• Research proposal writing, astronomy software package usage (hands-on) and LATEX training
