Shaw Visitor 2015-2016

Dr Alastair Edge (Durham University)

Dr Edge (hosted by Sarah Brough) is the inaugural AAO Shaw Visitor. He will be working with AAO staff on the brightest galaxies in galaxy clusters, to understand their formation history, and the history of the clusters in which they live. He will be using data from the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) Survey, and will also be collaborating with AAO staff on planning for the new Taipan galaxy survey.
