Read about our involvement with Herschel IR/submm Key Project,
in which I was a co-investigator:
Our research icludes observations of dusty elliptical and lenticular galaxies
in the local universe. Follow-up observations include data from ALMA
I am a member of the consortium: Galaxy and Mass Assembly,
GAMA, which studies galaxies via
imaging and spectroscopy.
I am a member of the MILES consortium,
which produces some of the most widely used stellar libraries and
stellar population models.
Graduate students interested in doing a PhD in extragalactic
astronomy at the JHI at UCLan,
can find some description of the
type of research being undertaken.
PhD Projects in extragalactic
astrophysics, working on early-type galaxies,
including further information and how to apply. (See email below)

Nicola K. Agius, PhD thesis, UCLan, 2014, "Dust in Early-Type Galaxies using Herschel-ATLAS and GAMA Data"
Adam T. Knowles, PhD thesis, UCLan, 2019, "Stellar Population Models and Chemical Enrichment in Early-Type Galaxies"
David H. W. Glass, ongoing project working with ALMA and IRAM-30m telescope data.
Galaxies - Normal and Interacting
Covering x-ray, optical, infrared, submm and radio observations, plus GCE models
UCLan is a member of the UK consortium for the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT).

Click on the image below to get to a black-and-white schematic movie of
the Local Group.
This was created in IDL, using data and a modified version
of an IDL script originally
supplied courtesy of Wolfgang Bradner (ESO Germany).
The image below shows the
location of galaxies in the Local Group, colour coded according
to their type (see the key).
The solid lines show galaxies above the plane and the dotted lines
show galaxies below
the plane. Image credit: Brandner and Grebel.
