Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1248696
Description: We here present the first spatially resolved study of the initial mass function (IMF) in external galaxies derived using a dynamical tracer of the mass-to-light ratio (M/L). We use the kinematics of r ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1202338
Description: The growth of brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) is closely related to the properties of their host cluster. We present evidence for dry mergers as the dominant source of BCG mass growth at z ≲ 1 in th ... 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
