Prof. Joaquin Vieira, grad students Kedar Phadke and Sreevani Jarugula, and undergrad Sydney Lower are among the astronomers who have made recent discoveries about how galaxies were formed.
Kedar A. Phadke
- Galaxy evolution
- Star formation at high redshift
I'm interested in star formation at high redshifts. Especially in calibrating various star formation indicators in the distant universe. I use the code CIGALE for spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting of galaxies and determine their properties.
I'm part of a team that's going to be one of the first to observe from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). We plan on observing a sample of four lensed galaxies viz 2 dusty star forming galaxies and 2 UV-selected galaxies.
