Galaxy Formation and Evolution. In particular early-type
galaxies, galaxies in clusters, and high redshift galaxies.
Examples of my research can be found here.
2. Co-evolution of spheroids and black-holes. Check out the AMUSE-Virgo website.
4. Cosmography from gravitational time delays, more details can be found here.
5. Galaxies at the epoch of reionization, more details can be found here.
For a more accessible description of my research, take a look at the following press releases (and you if you have nothing better to do you can listen to this interview by Mike Shara):
2008. A Double Einstein Ring

meet every week to eat pizza and discuss our research on gravitational
lensing, galaxy evolution and black holes according to this schedule. If you are interested in attending please e-mail me or Anna P (pancoast AT physics.ucsb.edu).
If you are looking for a PhD Thesis there are plenty of cool projects to work on. E-mail me if interested.
If you are a PhD Student abroad and you are interested in a visiting position in my group at UCSB feel free to contact me.
