In between these extremes, we carry out the largest multi-wavelength surveys conducted to date to understand the properties of the Milky Way and Magellanic System. Our research makes use of observations from all of the main European and international astronomical observatories, including ground-based observatories at optical, radio and submillimetre wavelengths, and space observatories at wavelengths ranging from the far infrared to X-rays.
