Theory Group Concepción

Departamento de Astronomía, Universidad de Concepción, Chile

Members of the Team

The group now consists of 4 professors, 3 postdocs, 5 PhD students, 14 Magister students and 2 titulo students. We are meanwhile the largest group within the astronomy department in Concepción and the largest theoretical astronomy group in Chile.

In the 10 years of existence, the group saw the finalisation of 2 PhD theses, 17 Magister and 13 titulo theses. We had 4 former postdocs spending time at our group.
