At Caltech, I lead a small research group consisting of postdocs, visiting graduate students, and summer under-graduate students. We are interested in understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies across cosmic time, applying observations, simulations, and machine learning methods.
Marziye works on spectroscopic aspects of (quiescent) galaxies using simulations and observations and machine learning techniques. In parallel, she is designing a tool to photometer imaging data from ground and space-based observatories from UV to infrared wavelengths.
Yu-Heng will be working on HST slit-less grism spectroscopy of high redshift low-luminosity quasars. The goal is to confirm their redshifts (thus setting important constraints on the faint-end of the quasar luminosity function) and probe their environment.
I will soon be hiring a postdoc to work on our approved JWST cycle 2 NIRSpec/IFU program to study ALPINE galaxies. Let me know if you are interested!
Patrizia (a student at University Padova, Italy) is studying together with Paolo Cassata (Univ. Padova), Mirka Dessauges-Zavadsky (Univ. Geneva), and myself the properties of star forming clumps in ALPINE galaxies by combining ALMA and JWST imaging from COSMOS-Web.
For a period of 10 weeks, Edward will study how SPHEREx will constrain the dust properties of low-redshift galaxies through their PAH emission.
