Professional Activities & Interests / Biographical Information

Mark Peacock has been part of Professor Zepf's research group since July 2010. His summary of research interests follows.

I have a broad interest in galaxy evolution, stellar populations and compact objects. To pursue these interests, my research focusses on using multiwavength observations of local galaxies to study their stellar populations, globular clusters, and X-ray binaries. I've been successful in obtaining funding and telescope time on HST and Chandra to pursue this work and my research has natural extensions that will utilize the superb capabilities of upcoming facilities such as the JWST, WFIRST, LSST and the ELTs.
