Cavendish Astrophysics (Cav-Ap) at Cambridge University has long
experience in the construction and operation of radio telescopes, this
includes the building of one of the world’s first phased arrays
for radio astronomy which made the Nobel prize winning discovery of
Pulsars. Cav-Ap has a very active Galaxy Evolution group specializing
in the evolution of star-forming galaxies and AGN and associated
feedback processes; several members of the group are already
investigating the problems involved with handling massive data-sets
which will be crucial to the success of the SKA project.
