Galaxies and Galaxy Evolution

We try to understand the origin and evolution of galaxies, as well as the physical and chemical processes at work within them, by making observations using telescopes on the ground.

These include the Atacama Large Millimetre Array and the Very Large Telescope, and telescopes in space such as Hubble and the James Webb Space Telescope. The observations we obtain include images of nearby galaxies, such as the first detailed submm image of the Andromeda galaxy shown above, and images of high-redshift galaxies that reveal what these galaxies were like over ten billion years in the past.
