Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1199894
Description: Due to longer dynamical time-scales, the outskirts of early-type galaxies retain the footprint of their formation and assembly. Under the popular two-phase galaxy formation scenario, an initial in sit ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1237617
Description: We study mass distributions within and beyond 5 effective radii (Re) in 23 early-type galaxies from the SAGES Legacy Unifying Globulars and Galaxies Survey, using their globular cluster (GC) kinematic ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/354643
Description: We present new wide-field photometry and spectroscopy of the globular clusters (GCs) around NGC 4649 (M60), the third brightest galaxy in the Virgo cluster. Imaging of NGC 4649 was assembled from a re ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1059610
Description: We study the total mass-density profile for a sample of 14 fast-rotator early-type galaxies (stellar masses 10.2 ≲ logM*/M⊙ ≲ 11.7). We combine observations from the SLUGGS and ATLAS³D surveys to map ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1059595
Description: The outer halo regions of early-type galaxies carry key information about their past accretion history. However, spectroscopically probing the stellar component at such galactocentric radii is still c ... More
