Galaxies are such complex systems that in order to properly understand them we need to break them down into their different properties/characteristics such as their morphology, star formation, fragmentation, kinematics, environment, etc. and we need to account for the way they evolve at different times. My PhD project, under supervision of Karl Glazebrook and co-supervised by Deanne Fisher and Sarah Sweet is about the study of the evolution of galaxies through cosmic time in terms of one of its most fundamental properties: Angular Momentum. I've had an interest in studying galaxies since my previous research experience with mass content in Globular Clusters (Universidad de Antioquia in Colombia), searching for strong lenses in the centre of Galaxy Clusters and digging into some phenomenology of the large scale structure of the Universe (In Leiden University, The Netherlands).
