Prof. Dr. Andreas Burkert

The starting point of my research is the exciting question of how the simple, beginnings of the big-bang have given rise to today's highly complex universe.

Current focus:

  • The nature of dark matter
  • The development of the Milky Way
  • Galaxies in the early universe
  • Star formation
  • Defense against asteroids
  • Life as a natural emergent process in the universe

Many physical processes in the universe are highly non-linear and complex. We try to reconstruct the development of the universe from the beginnings in the Big Bang to the origin of life.

In addition to the theoretical interpretation of observations, a deep understanding of the dynamic universe also requires detailed numerical simulations, coupled with sophisticated data analysis and visualization.

Let’s Work Together

Prof. Dr. Andreas Burkert is a university lecturer at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) in Munich and heads the chair for theoretical and numerical astrophysics.

He researches the evolution of the universe, from the Big Bang to the present day, the nature of dark matter, and the formation of galaxies, stars and planets.

He would like to understand how the simple conditions of the Big Bang made it possible to develop the complex universe observable today to the point of life and whether there is life elsewhere in space.
