Christopher J. Conselice
Prof. Christopher Conselice is the PI of the GOODS NICMOS Survey. His main interest in the survey is uncovering the formation of the most massive galaxies in the universe during the epoch when a large fraction of their stellar mass formed. He is also investigating the star formation and merging history for the entire galaxy popuation as imaged within the NICMOS fields.
Amanda E. Bauer
Amanda is a post-doc with the GNS group at the University of Nottingham after having received her PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Within the GNS collaboration she acts as the star formation guru. In general, she is interested in investigating how galaxies came to be as they are. She uses earth-based and orbiting space telescopes, sensitive to all regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, to explore variations in how galaxies formed, how they lived their lives, and how they evolved into the diverse array of galaxy species we see today.
Asa F. L. Bluck
Asa is in the third year of his phD at Nottingham and will start his position as a Gemini Science Fellow in Hawaii in November 2010. His work connects galaxy merger rates and merger fractions with the co-evolution of galaxies and their central massive black holes. Is the evolution of massive galaxies at high redshift dominated by external influences like galaxy merging or is it mainly regulated by internal processes like AGN feedback? Asa uses data from a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum, ranging from near infrared to X-ray observations.
Fernando Buitrago
Fernando is a phD student in the GNS group at Nottingham since Spring 2008 and is jointly supervised by I. Trujillo at the IAC in Tenerife, Spain. His research is focused on massive galaxies at high redshifts and how their structures and sizes might evolve over cosmic time. He is actively involved in the hot topic of size evolution of massive galaxies, arguing that the most massive galaxies in the early universe are more compact by a factor of up to 5 compared to similar mass counterparts in the local universe. He works with near infrared imaging as well as 3D spectroscopy.
Ruth Grützbauch
Ruth joined the GNS group as a post-doc in September 2008. Her work focuses on the connections between galaxy properties and their environment, using ground and space-based observational data. Many physical processes that influence galaxy evolution depend on the type of environment a galaxy is located in, such as galaxy merging, which happens preferentially in smaller groups, or harrassment and ram pressure stripping, which require the deep potential well of galaxy clusters. How important are environmental factors in shaping the galaxies we observe, today and in the early universe?
Alice Mortlock
Alice has started her phD in the GNS group in Autumn 2009. She is investigating the evolution of stellar mass functions up to a redshift of z~3, including the differential behaviour of red and blue galaxies over more than 2 orders of magnitude in stellar mass. How do mass functions in the early universe compare to the local universe? When did galaxies of different stellar mass form and are they already in place at high z, compared to their local number densities? Is there evolution in the shape or the slope of the mass function and possibly from blue to red galaxy populations?
