 I am a Professor and Department Chair of the  Department of Astronomy at the  University of Texas (UT) at Austin, conducting research on the evolution of galaxies. Prior to joining UT, I was a tenure-track astronomer at the  Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) which is responsible for science operations of NASA's  Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the future next generation James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

My research addresses cardinal questions on the evolution of galaxies as a function of redshift and environment. How do galaxies grow their stars, black holes, and dark matter halos across cosmic times and vastly different environments (field, groups, clusters)? What is the role played by theoretically-predicted growth modes, (e.g., violent mergers of galaxies) and more ‘quiescent’ modes (e.g., gas accretion along cosmological filaments and secular evolution driven by bars) in the gobal star formation and black hole activity ? In the last decade, my group has been addressing these questions (e.g., Jogee et al. 2004, 2005, 2009; Heiderman, Jogee, et al. 2009; Marinova, Jogee et al.2007, 2009, 2012; Weinzirl, Jogee et al. 2009, 2011, 2013; Barazza et al. 2008, 2009a, 2009b, etc), by quantifying the merger rate, star formation rate, and black hole activity of galaxies, and conducting ‘structural archaeology’ – the census of core stellar structures (classical bulges, stellar disks, and bars) at different cosmic epochs. We also work closely with internationally recognized theorists (e.g., Drs. Burkert, Hopkins, Hernquist, Khochfar, and Somerville) to perform detailed comparisons of empirical results with theoretical predictions in order to improve the model baryonic physics and advance galaxy evolution paradigms.

At our monthly Women Mean Business meetings our members, partners, and guests come away with insights, information, and connections that benefit their businesses, teams, as well as their professional/personal lives.
