Kim-Vy Tran's research focuses on how galaxies form and evolve. To study the properties of galaxies over cosmic time, Dr. Tran combines observations from space-based facilities such as the Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope with observations from ground-based facilities such as the Magellan (Chile) and the Keck (Hawaii) telescopes. She and her research team connect observations of galaxies in the distant universe to understand how galaxies like our own Milky Way formed.
