Assistant Professor    TADAKI, Ken-ichi

Research Field

  • Galaxy evolution

Brief Introduction of Research

  • We are conducting observational research using the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii, the ALMA in Chile, and the Hubble Space Telescope for understanding formation histories of galaxies over 13.8 billion years. In particular, we are trying to answer big questions such as "How did galaxies change their morphology?", "What causes intense star formation activity in the early universe?" and "When did first massive galaxies form?"
