Introducing the research group


Our research interests include the physics and evolution of stars and the Galaxy, including binary stars and physics of interstellar and intergalactic medium, investigations of gamma ray bursts.

Students are making regular observations at the Faculty’s Astronomical and geophysical observatory at Golovec near Ljubljana. The group is very active in science outreach. Open days and evenings at the observatory are a regular quarterly event at the beginning of spring, summer, autumn and winter.
