This is a talk given at lunch time, usually in the conference room at noon.
Broadband photometry of galaxies measures an unresolved mix of complex stellar populations, gas, and dust.
The Dragonfly Telephoto Array, comprised of 48 individual Canon telephoto lenses operating together as a single telescope, is an innovative approach to low surface brightness imaging.
Recent photometric and spectroscopic surveys have paved the way for detailed studies of galaxy evolution from when galaxies were most rapidly forming stars (z~2) to the c
Redshift of z ~ 2 is an important era in the history of the universe, as it contains the peak of star formation rate density and quasar activity.
Galaxies at the peak of cosmic star formation (z~2-3) exhibit significantly higher star formation rates and gas fractions at fixed stellar mass than nearby galaxies.
Obtaining a complete census of cosmic star formation requires an understanding of faint star-forming galaxies, the so-called dwarf galaxies, that are far below
