Research lines at INCT are:
Stellar and Galactic Astronomy: The main goal is to analyze and solve complex problems related to the stellar structure and galactic astronomy, whether based on theoretical or observational data, looking for answers to scientific questions arising in the state-of-the-art astrophysics regarding topics such as star formation and evolution, or the role of these processes on the composition and evolution of stellar populations within the Milky Way.
Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology: This research line aims to analyze and interpret the processes regulating the formation and evolution of galaxies, including our own, their physical and chemical properties, employing photometric and spectral data from ground and spacel. It also involves the use of theroretical models about the evolution of the universe to investigate other topics of this area.
Planetary Sciences and Exoplanets: This research line employs physical analysis as well as numerical techniques to detect and characterize extrasolar planets, study other bodies of the Solar System (except the Sun), and to interpret geological maps and other types of data, based on existing geophysical models.
