IAASARS researchers have expertise in ground-based observations with optical telescopes in both photometry and spectroscopy. They mainly address problems related to stars, their evolution and complex interplay with the ISM, as well as binary stars and stellar proper motion. In addition group members are studying the morphology and evolution of nearby galaxies.Scientific Team Members
The X-ray Astrophysics group is one of the largest groups of the institute with four permanent staff and six postdoctoral researchers. The group has extensive experience in X-ray data analysis mainly from the XMM-Newton space observatory and also from the Chandra X-ray observatory. The group has been focusing problems related to AGN formation and evolution as it can be probed by the X-ray emission of distant and nearby galaxies.

The Infrared Astrophysics group has a strong expertise in infrared data analysis obtained with the Spitzer Space Telescope of NASA and the Herschel Space Observatory and Infrared Space Observatory of ESA. The team addresses various topics in extragalactic astrophysics and in particular in galaxy evolution, dust formation and gas depletion in interacting galaxies and Active Galactic Nuclei, gas and dust properties of Luminous Infrared Galaxies, as well as radiative transfer modeling and dust properties of nearby galaxies.Scientific Team Members
