Galaxy Evolution

Understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies is key in understanding the formation and evolution of the Universe as a whole, including our own origins. The stars, gas, and dust in galaxies undergo complex evolutionary cycles. I present some of our work at UofL, which is mainly focused on the study of strongly star-forming galaxies at an epoch where the Universe was about 15-20% of its current age or only 2-3 billion years old. I will give an inside in the work of our team and demonstrate how we utilize high quality data observed by world leading ground- and space based telescopes such as the Very Large Telescope at the European Southern Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Herschel Satellite.
