I am a Professor in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Texas (UT) at Austin, conducting research on the evolution of galaxies. Prior to joining UT, I was a tenure-track astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) which is responsible for science operations of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the future next generation James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

The Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF), the deepest visible-light image ever made of the Universe, (Credit: NASA, ESA, S Beckwith and HUDF home team ) shows the first galaxies to emerge from the so-called "dark ages," (the time shortly after the big bang when the first stars reheated the cold, dark universe), and chronicles a period when the universe was younger and more chaotic, with violent interactions between galaxies.
