The Interstellar Medium Group led by Prof. Cristina Popescu investigates the formation and evolution of galaxies by studying the detailed physical processes that take place in these complex systems related to the interaction of radiation with dust, gas and cosmic rays. This research uses radiative transfer calculations and simulations and modelling techniques. We are also interested in applications of theoretical models to observations, including data from ground and space-borne observatories. We are member of the GAMA, HATLAS, HiGAL and Safari/SPICA consortia and of the GALEX-GAMA collaboration.
