Mark Swinbank

Dr, STFC Advanced Fellow, Dept of Physics

Durham University

Durham, United Kingdom

Mark's research interests include the formation and evolution of galaxies, galaxy clusters, large scale structure and galaxies in interaction. He exploits multi-wavelength data to explore the properties of distant (high-redshift) galaxies in order to explore the processes which shaped the local Universe (such as the Milky-Way). In particular, he uses strong gravitational lensing (the deflection of light by massive foreground galaxy clusters) to boost the sizes and brightnesses of images of distant, young galaxies to resolve structures and dynamics on scales which would otherwise be impossible with current technology.
