Observational Cosmology


The scientific goals of our research group fall within the area of Observational Cosmology, i.e. the empirical measurement of the fundamental parameters of the Universe, and the verification of the theories which explain its structure and evolution. The work of our group during the last years has focused on the technical refinement of the observational method known as photometric redshifts and on its practical implementation in Surveys. More precisely, we have played key roles on the birth and scientific development of the projects ALHAMBRA, CLASH and J-PAS.
