Galaxies and Structure in the Early Universe by Elizabeth Stanway (University of Bristol)

Observational surveys probing the rest-frame ultraviolet have made significant progress in identifying and characterising galaxies and structure in the early universe. Over the last decade, the observational horizon has been pushed back from z=3-4 to within a few hundred Myr of the Big Bang. New instrumentation and facilities present an opportunity to further refine our knowledge of early galaxy formation, and to explore systems which can't be detected in the rest-ultraviolet. I will discuss my recent work on both optical/near-IR and submm/radio studies of the distant Universe.
