Visit by Asa F. L. Bluck

Asa F. L. Bluck is visiting DARK from 27-30 June 2011. He is here to collaborate with Sune Toft and his team on their research on the merger history of massive galaxies over cosmic time, and their potential to explain, partially or entirely, the remarkable size evolution observed by both of their groups independently to date.

Asa is a Science Fellow at Gemini Observatory, Hawaii. He obtained his PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Nottingham in the UK. His research interests center around the formation and evolution of massive galaxies and their supermassive black holes over the history of the Universe. He holds a MSc degree in Cosmology from the University of Sussex.
