Lise Christensen wins YDUN grant

Congratulations to Lise Bech Christensen, who this week was awarded 6,457,791 kr. for the project: Galaxy building blocks: Dwarf galaxies at high redshifts from the Danish Council for Independent Research / Natural Sciences (FNU).

Congratulations to Lise Bech Christensen

Lise will be hiring 2 postdocs and 1 PhD student to help her complete the project, which aims to push forward our understanding of the role of dwarf galaixes in the evolution from the distant to the local universe. The team will use strong gravitational lenses to study faint background galaxies which can also be observed spectroscopically using ground-based telescopes, exploiting the connection between dwarf galaxies and the widespread intervening absorption seen in the spectra of high redshift galaxies.
