Prof. More's research focusses on cosmology and the formation and evolution of galaxies, both observationally and theoretically. Astronomical observations in the last couple of decades indicate that a large portion (~96%) of the energy density of the Universe is made up of two mysterious and poorly understood components: dark matter and dark energy. His research work has helped understand the connection between the observable properties of galaxies and the dark matter clumps in which galaxies live. This has allowed the use of galaxies as shining beacons to explore the parameters that describe the dark Universe. He is a member of the Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam survey as well as the upcoming Large Synoptic Survey Telescope project, two ambitious projects which aim to map out dark matter in the Universe and understand dark energy.
