#80 - Dr. Jeyhan Kartaltepe - Galaxies, Galaxies, and More Galaxies!
Rate the show 5 stars wherever you listen to end the pandy! (that means pandemic... for the people who don't understand hip-lingo) Episode 80 features astrophysicist Dr. Jeyhan Kartaltepe. We discuss how galaxies have evolved from the soup at the very beginning of the Universe to the massive objects we observe (and live in) today. We also discuss how galaxy surveys observe millions of galaxies and what they all can teach us about the Universe! Dr. Kartaltepe is an astrophysicist in the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Director for the Laboratory for Multiwavelength Astrophysics at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). She is an expert in the areas of galaxy formation and evolution, galaxy morphologies, galaxy mergers and interactions, and the properties of infrared galaxies. She is a leading member in several large collaborative multiwavelength surveys, including COSMOS (The Cosmic Evolution Survey), CANDELS (The Cosmic Assembly Near-Infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey), and CEERS (The Cosmic Evolution Early Release Science Survey).
