Professor Duncan Forbes

My interests span most of extragalactic astronomy and cosmology, however I focus on observational aspects of galaxy formation and evolution. I am taking a leading role in the international SAGES project (Study the Astrophysics of Globular clusters in Extragalactic Systems) which combines HST and Subaru imaging with Keck spectra to better understand globular cluster systems. I regularly observe on the Keck and AAT telescopes. My research group includes several PhD students and postdocs. If you are a potential PhD student interested in cutting-edge research on extragalactic globular clusters please contact me below.
