Prof. Duncan Forbes‘s interests span most of extragalactic astronomy and cosmology, however he focusus on observational aspects of galaxy formation and evolution. He has 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. He regularly observes on the Keck and AAT telescopes.
Special Colloquium. Visiting Sam Penny and Karen Masters.
