I am currently working with Dr. Caryl Gronwall on characterizing star forming galaxies with redshifts out to z = 0.5 via their [OII] emission. Specifically, I am utilizing data from the Hobby Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment (HETDEX) pilot survey to study the morphologies and other physical properties of these galaxies. The long-term goal is to use the full HETDEX survey data when it becomes available to study star formation as a function of redshift and galactic environment.
