Research at the CSH spans a broad range of disciplines and methodology, from theory and simulation to observations and instrumentation. Major investments include the CSH and Bernoulli Fellowships and Visiting Professorship programs, the Exoclimes Simulation Platform, the SAINT-Ex ground-based telescope and an affiliated array of space missions. Our researchers have a diverse range of interests.
