Abstract: Galaxy morphology, represented by the distribution of star light, gas and dust, has long been studied through various methods. One of the most notable studies was by Edwin Hubble, who established the Hubble Tuning Fork diagram based on visual classifications of galaxy type, but modern technology and the Hubble Space Telescope have led to new approaches to classify galaxies. In this talk, I will discuss how morphology is determined today, along with how studying morphological parameters of galaxies in the local and distant Universe can lead to a better understanding of galaxy formation and evolution.

** The seminar will take place in Olin 114, beginning at 4:30pm. Refreshments will be served, as well. **
