Welcome to the Galaxies Group at Oxy! We use observations of galaxies beyond our own from space- and ground-based telescopes to learn how galaxies form and evolve.

Interacting Dwarf Galaxies

We are conducting the first systematic study of interacting dwarf galaxies, a survey called TiNy Titans (TNT).

Dwarf Galaxy Groups

We have found the first compact groups with no massive galaxy host.

Panchromatic Views of Massive Galaxy Mergers

The Great Observatories All-Sky LIRG Survey is a legacy effort to understand the physical processes governing the dust, star formation, and gas dynamics in nearby luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs).
