Christopher Conselice studies the formation of galaxies, addressing the issue of how and when galaxies form. He does this by examining the detailed properties and characteristics of nearby and distant systems. By understanding the physical processes responsible for galaxy features, and connecting nearby and high redshift galaxy populations, he is attempting to decipher the history of this formation. He is also a leader of several large extragalactic surveys utilzing the near infrared part of the spectrum. Christopher Conselice has led the GOODS Near-infrared Survey (GNS), the largest Hubble Space Telescope program ever led outside the USA, as well as the POWIR surveyw ith the Palomar 5m telescope in California. He is now actively involved with the CANDELS and Frontier Fields programmes with Hubble.
Prof. Conselice has a leading role in the European Space Agency's Euclid mission as the co-lead of Legacy Science. He previously was on the NASA WFIRST Science Definition Team.
