About Sangeeta Malhotra

Sangeeta is an astronomer and associate professor in SESE. Her research ranges from properties of dust and gas in the (relatively nearby) interstellar medium to some of the farthest known galaxies. The past few years she has spent working on finding and characterizing galaxies back in the days when the universe was very young (less than 10% of its present age). The specific projects she has worked on related to this topic are: 1) LALA (Large Area Lyman Alpha) survey; 2) GRAPES (deepest spectroscopy ever on the Hubble Ultra Deep Field); 3) PEARS (used the grism on the ACS on the Hubble Space Telescope). Sangeeta is also involved with building ground based instrumentation on the LBT, and a Joint Dark Energy Space Mission.
