Dr Sobral is part of the new Observational Astrophysics group at Lancaster University. He conducts a wide range of his own observations and use different state-of-the-art telescopes (including the Hubble Space telescope, the Very Large Telescope, Subaru, CFHT, Keck, ALMA, INT, WHT) in order to understand how galaxies like our own formed and evolved from the primitive Universe till today. He has obtained very high impact results, including measuring, with a single technique, the decline of the star formation history of the Universe, and e.g. the discovery of the CR7 galaxy, with the best evidence for the very first generation of stars.
