The UW Astronomy Department conducts research across nearly every area of modern astronomy and astrophysics, including observation, theory, software, and instrumentation. Both faculty and students publish in all US and international astronomy journals, hold leadership positions in several major projects and organizations, and collaborate with researchers in other departments and institutes across campus. In the provided web pages, we summarize the specific projects and topics currently being studied in the Department, and identify the faculty members engaged in these efforts.
