Introduction to Our Center

The Leung Center for Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics is a research center at National Taiwan University.
Cosmology and astroparticle physics are some of the most active and inspiring areas of the physical sciences. Members of LeCosPA study a wide range of topics, from the initial conditions of the Big Bang to the formation of the large-scale structure in the late universe. Our Center contains both groups focussing on theoretical research and groups performing experiments. We have close ties to the Center for Theoretical Physics at NTU, the Astrophysics Group at NTU and the Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at Academia Sinica.

LeCosPA was founded in 2007 with the generous support of Mr. Chee-Chun Leung (Quanta Computers Inc). The Founding Director of LeCosPA was Prof. Pisin Chen and its current Director is Prof. Daniel Baumann. In 2018, LeCosPA moved into its current home in the Cosmology Hall on the NTU campus, funded by a generous donation of Mr. Leung.
The Chee-Chun Leung Cosmology Hall was designed by architect Kris Yao.
The atrium contains statues of five giants of cosmology—Albert Einstein, Galileo Galilei, Stephen Hawking, Zhang Heng and Isaac Newton.

The open space on the 7th Floor is used for social events and as a  meeting place for LeCosPA members.
We welcome visitors from all parts of the world. If you are interested in spending time at LeCosPA please contact us.
LeCosPA is located on the beautiful NTU campus in the center of Taipei.
The Cosmology Hall lies between the Department of Physics and the Astronomy-Mathematics building.
