Welcome to the homepage of the Hamburg Observatory!
The Hamburg Observatory as an institute is part of the Department of Physics at the University of Hamburg.
The fields of research of the several research groups cover a wide range of scientific fields, from astroparticles to cosmology.
In June, we could welcome a new staff member. Junior Professor Dr. Annalisa Bonafede has taken up her position at the Observatory. She has done her PhD at the University of Bologna and has been a postdoctoral researcher in Bremen and Hamburg. Annalisa is an expert in radio astronomy and is using radio telescopes such as the Very Large Array (shown in the picture) and the Low Frequency Array that the University of Hamburg is part of. Among the things that Annalisa is researching are the origins of cosmic magnetic fields and the acceleration of cosmic rays.
