He wants to characterize the star formation (along with the dust) in a large set of normal galaxies in order to understand what triggers star formation. For his thesis, he will be using data obtained by the Infrared Space Observtory, the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility and will use the submillimeter to study cold dust with the James Clerck Maxwell Telescope.
