PhD candidate researching galaxy formation and evolution, Swinburne University of Technology

I use high resolution space-based imaging along with deep ground based imaging to study the evolution of distant galaxies. In the local universe, giant red galaxies are the largest and most prolific in the cluster environment. I am interested in determining how these galaxies grow so large and if the cluster environment accelerates their growth. Using images of field and cluster galaxies, I can measure their structural properties and search for clues that would reveal a different evolutionary path for cluster galaxies.
