Prof Christopher Conselice will present a talk "A New View of the Cosmos from JWST and Other Telescopes"

Biography: Christopher J. Conselice is a Professor of Extragalactic Astronomy within the Astronomy and Astrophysics Theory Group at the University of Manchester whose research is focused on galaxy formation and evolution through cosmic time.  He works with space and ground-based data and computer simulations to determine how galaxies have formed from the earliest epochs in the universe until today.  He has led several large HST surveys including the GOODS NICMOS Survey (GNS) and is a founding member of other large surveys including CANDELS and GOODS.
He is the PI of the Advanced ERC grant, EPOCHS, designed to study the first galaxy formation at the epoch of reionization based on James Webb Space Telescope Data.  He is also the lead editor of the "Galaxies and Cosmology" corridor for the Astrophysical Journal and AAS Journals.
He maintains a web site on his popular writings called "The Astronomer's Notebook".  Prof. Conselice joined the University of Manchester in 2020.

The lecture will start at 1930 and will be held in Room 6.41 in the Royal College building, University of Strathclyde
