We are one of the four research clusters selected by Bishop's University in 2009 to implement its Strategic Research Plan. We carry out research in cosmology, the astrophysics of binary stellar systems, exoplanets, relativity, and fundamental theories of gravity.


LIGO detects gravitational waves! 100 years after the Einstein's formulation of General Relativity, the LIGO collaboration has detected gravitational waves from a binary black hole merger.

We are finalizing the process of hiring a new Tier II Canada Research Chair. Stay tuned.

We are proud to host the Theory Canada 8 Conference. The Canadian theoretical physics community will meet at Bishop's from May 23-26, 2013 to share new research results. For more information, please go the TC8 website.
