Elliptical Galaxies as Tools for Observational Cosmology

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    Dr Robert Saglia from Munich will visit the ANU to work for one year with Dr Matthew Colless. They will continue their well-established collaboration using observations of elliptical galaxies to measure large-scale motions in the universe and test cosmological models. They will carry out observations at Siding Spring Observatory to study how the stars in nearby elliptical galaxies were formed, and at the Anglo-Australian Telescope to search for high-redshift galaxy clusters containing young elliptical galaxies. This work will develop the use of elliptical galaxies as tools for observational cosmology, and strengthen the collaborative ties between astronomers in Australia and Germany.
