Metals in the diffuse gas around high-redshift galaxies
Promotores: Prof.dr. J. Schaye & Prof.dr. C. Steidel (California Institute of Technology)
Resolving the building blocks of galaxies in space and time
We investigate the buildup of galaxies from various vantage points. The first two chapters focus on the stellar content of galaxies, especially the distribution of stellar masses at birth and potential variations therein in various galactic environments.
Star-Forming Galaxies at the Cosmic Dawn
Promotor: Prof.dr. M. Franx, Co-Promotor: Rychard Bouwens
Star formation and aging at cosmic noon: the spectral evolution of galaxies from z=2
Promotores: Prof.dr. M. Franx & Prof.dr. P.G. van Dokkum (Yale University)
From the First Galaxies to the Peak of the Star Formation History
How did galaxies form? How did galaxies evolve?
Modeling interstellar bubbles: near and far
Promotor: Prof. dr. A.G.G.M. Tielens
Dawn of the red and dead: stellar kinematics of massive quiescent galaxies out to z = 2

Identifying the origins of galaxy formation
This thesis investigates how galaxies form and what diversifies the evolutionary histories of galaxies.

Research Projects, Categories and Supervisors
These are the proposed research projects for LEAPS 2019. Please note that not all projects will go ahead and some may still be added in the near future. Final funding decisions lie with the Faculty sponsors. And please make a note that if you are interested in an ESA project, to check if your state…
Leiden researchers depict the formation of galaxies
An international team of astronomers, with researchers at Leiden Observatory playing a leading role, has mapped the fuel for galaxy formation in the iconic Hubble Ultra Deep Field. The results of the research have been accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal.
