Research Interests

My research concentrates on distant star-forming galaxies and the evolution of the members of rich galaxy clusters. I am co-PI of the QSO Sightline And Galaxy Evolution survey (QSAGE), a 96 orbit Cycle 24 Hubble Space Telescope program. QSAGE uses the light from distant accreting black holes to probe the gas in the outskirts of galaxies, in order to discover why galaxies were forming stars at a much higher rate in the past and the nature of feedback processes. I am a core member of the KMOS Redshift One Spectroscopic Survey (KROSS) a resolved Halpha survey of 800 typical star-forming galaxies at redshift 1.
