Research Interests

My main research interests are in the evolution of galaxy properties and the formation of large-scale structures. Using the kinematic close pairs and optical-selected merging galaxies from DEEP2 redshift survey, I study the redshift evolution of galaxy merger rates and how efficiently the galaxy interaction can trigger the star formation. I also study the linkage between the galaxy properties and their hosting environment, such as galaxy groups and clusters. The purpose is to understand how the galaxies evolve to what they are in the present day universe and how they are associated with the built-up of the large-scale structures. In addition, I also study the galaxy luminosity/stellar mass evolution up to z ~ 8 using the CFHT/WIRCAM and Spitzer data in GOODS fields, in order to understand when the most massive galaxies form.
