The Astrophysics Research Institute (ARI) at LJMU is one of the world’s leading authorities in astronomy and astrophysics. Its work encompasses a comprehensive programme of observational and theoretical research, telescope operation and instrument development, academic learning and outreach activities.
The ARI has formal partnerships with several major international projects including: CTA gamma-ray observatory, LIGO-Virgo gravity wave experiments, Euclid, Sloan IV Digital Sky Survey project, WEAVE on the William Herschel Telescope, LOFAR and the LSST. Research is underpinned by external grant funding, including the STFC for science exploitation.
In 2004, LJMU designed and built the Liverpool Telescope, one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated ground-based robotic telescopes. Since then, the ARI has played an instrumental role in the development of a global network of robotic telescopes that have helped to revolutionise the study of astronomy.
