– University of Copenhagen


The Centre is lead by Professor Jens Hjorth, and research staff play an active role in the strategic direction of DARK.

An advisory committee, Anne Kinney (NASA), Chryssa Kouveliotou (NASA) and Richard Ellis (Caltech), evaluates and advises the staff on research and management issues.

DARK is also a fully embedded research section at the  Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), Faculty of Science, at the University of Copenhagen.  DARK faculty therefore contribute significantly to astrophysics bachelor's, master's and PhD teaching, as well as committee work at the Institute.
