"Galaxy Clusters in the Distant Universe"

Speaker's website »

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound systems in the
universe and are extreme laboratories for studying the physics driving
galaxy evolution as well as powerful tests of cosmology.
Understanding how galaxies form and evolve in clusters continues to be
a fundamental question in astronomy.  I present results from an
ongoing multi-wavelength study of galaxies in clusters at z>1.5 to
track how they assemble their stars.
