Research Interests

Gerry Gilmore's research is largely related to Stellar populations
which are a great way to find what matter really is, and where it is...

  • GAIA: the origins of the Galaxy
  • Gaia-ESO Survey: what is in the Galaxy?
  • Galactic and galactic chemical evolution: the histories of Stardust
  • Dark Mass distribution in galaxies: searching for the nature of matter
  • Stellar luminosity function: how much mass is understood?
  • OPTICON, the EC Optical Infrared Coordination Network for astronomy
  • E-ELT, next generation very large telescopes: look at the ESO web site for news.
