© 2016 The Authors. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Royal Astronomical Society. We have investigated the effect of group environment on residual star formation in galaxies, using Galaxy Evolution Explorer near-ultraviolet (NUV)...

A photometrically and spectroscopically confirmed population of passive spiral galaxies (2016)
Journal Article

Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Letters, 462(1), L11-L15. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnrasl/slw117

We have identified a population of passive spiral galaxies from photometry and integral field spectroscopy. We selected z < 0.035 spiral galaxies that have WISE colours consistent with little mid-infrared emission from warm dust. Matched aperture pho...

The z < 1.2 optical luminosity function from a sample of ∼410,000 galaxies in Boötes (2015)
Journal Article

Using a sample of ~410,000 galaxies to a depth of IAB=24 over 8.26 deg2 in the Boötes field (~10 times larger than the z~1 luminosity function (LF) studies in the prior literature), we have accurately measured the evolving B-band LF of red galaxies a...

The influence of red spiral galaxies on the shape of the local K-band luminosity function (2015)
Journal Article

We have determined K-band luminosity functions for 13,325 local universe galaxies as a function of morphology and color (for Ktot ≤ 10.75). Our sample is drawn from the Two Micron All Sky Survey Extended Source Catalog, with all sample galaxies havin...

An accurate new method of calculating absolute magnitudes and K-corrections applied to the Sloan filter set (2014)
Journal Article
Beare, R., Brown, M. J. I., & Pimbblet, K. (2014). An accurate new method of calculating absolute magnitudes and K-corrections applied to the Sloan filter set. The Astrophysical journal, 797(2), https://doi.org/10.1088/0004-637x/797/2/104

We describe an accurate new method for determining absolute magnitudes, and hence also K-corrections, that is simpler than most previous methods, being based on a quadratic function of just one suitably chosen observed color. The method relies on the... Read More about An accurate new method of calculating absolute magnitudes and K-corrections applied to the Sloan filter set.

The rarity of star formation in brightest cluster galaxies as measured by WISE (2014)
Journal Article

We present the mid-infrared star formation rates of 245 X-ray selected, nearby (z < 0.1) brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs). A homogeneous and volume limited sample of BCGs was created by X-ray selecting clusters with Lx > 1 × 1044 erg s⁻ ¹. The Wi...

Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA) : fine filaments of galaxies detected within voids (2014)
Journal Article

Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Letters, 440(1), L106-L110. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnrasl/slu019

Based on data from the Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey, we report on the discovery of structures that we refer to as ‘tendrils’ of galaxies: coherent, thin chains of galaxies that are rooted in filaments and terminate in neighbouring filaments...

Journal Article

Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 438(1), 177-194. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stt2136

From a volume-limited sample of 45 542 galaxies and 6000 groups with z ≤ 0.213, we use an adapted minimal spanning tree algorithm to identify and classify large-scale structures within the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. Using galaxy groups,... Read More about Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): The large-scale structure of galaxies and comparison to mock universes.
