Christopher Conselice studies the formation of galaxies, addressing the issue of how rather than 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 is now leading the GOODS Near-infrared Survey (GNS), the largest Hubble Space Telescope program ever led outside the USA.Current TeachingF32SA5 - The Structures of Galaxies
