Visit by Inger Jorgensen

Inger Jorgensen is visiting DARK 17-21 September 2012. She is here to collaborate with Sune and Andrew amongst others. Inger is currently working on galaxy evolution in clusters, especially investigating the evolution of passive galaxies between redshift z = 1-2 and the present.

Inger Jorgensen is the Head of Science Operations at Gemini North. She obtained her PhD in astronomy from Copenhagen University, Denmark, in 1993. Following a postdoctoral fellowship and a Hubble Fellowship at University of Texas, Austin, she joined Gemini in 1998. Her main research interests are the formation and evolution of galaxies. She currently leads an international research group carrying out an observational study of the stellar populations of galaxies in rich clusters between z = 1 and the present using the Gemini Telescopes and the Hubble Space Telescope.
