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

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/326404
Description: We present stellar kinematics of 22 nearby early-type galaxies (ETGs), based on two-dimensional (2D) absorption line stellar spectroscopy out to ~2-4 Rₑ (effective radii), as part of the ongoing SLUGG ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/224261
Description: We report the discovery of an ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) associated with the Sombrero galaxy (M104). This is the closest massive UCD known and the first spectroscopically verified massive UCD which is ... More
