Journal Article
Moffett, A. J., Phillipps, S., Robotham, A. S. G., Driver, S. P., Bremer, M. N., Cortese, L., …van de Sande, J. (2019). Star-Forming, Rotating Spheroidal Galaxies in the GAMA and SAMI Surveys. Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 489(2), 2830–2843. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stz2237

The Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey has morphologically identified a class of ‘Little Blue Spheroid’ (LBS) galaxies whose relationship to other classes of galaxies we now examine in detail. Considering a sample of 868 LBSs, we find that such g... Read More

The effect of minor and major mergers on the evolution of low excitation radio galaxies (2019)
Journal Article
Gordon, Y. A., Pimbblet, K. A., Kaviraj, S., Owers, M. S., O'Dea, C. P., Walmsley, M., …Pierce, J. C. (2019). The effect of minor and major mergers on the evolution of low excitation radio galaxies. The Astrophysical journal, 878(2), https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/ab203f

We use deep, μ r lesssim 28 mag arcsec−2, r-band imaging from the Dark Energy Camera Legacy Survey to search for past, or ongoing, merger activity in a sample of 282 low-excitation radio galaxies (LERGs) at z < 0.07. Our principal aim is to assess t... Read More
