Eduard Westra visits UCM
For his thesis he wants to determine the volume averaged star formation rate at several epochs in the Universe. He use emission line galaxies selected from two narrowband surveys: Wide Field Imager Lyman Alpha (Lyα) Search (WFILAS) and Taurus Tuneable Filter Field Galaxy Survey (TTFFGS). This is why he visited us: his work is in the same field as those of the Sergio and Víctor thesis.
He gave us an interesting talk about 'Star Forming Galaxies and their Environments across the Ages' where he discussed the selection of the line emitting galaxies for different epochs for WFILAS and the results, which he got from the search for Lyα emitting galaxies at z ~ 5.7 from WFILAS and how he will approach the low and intermediate redshift part of WFILAS and TTFFGS.
