  Research topic: Stellar mass assembly in galaxy clusters.

Galaxy clusters are the most massive gravitationally bound structures in the Universe and allow us insights into the formation and evolution of structure in the Universe. My research is focused on the most massive galaxies in clusters and the objects which surround them.

I use data from some of the largest telescopes in the world and am pioneering new analysis techniques to study the evolution of galaxies in cluster cores at very large distances, equivalent to look-back times of half way back to the Big Bang.
