Teaching and learning

Dr Sweet teaches astrophysics, and supervises Honours and PhD students.

Research Interests

I'm interested in the formation and evolution of galaxies, ranging from dwarf to giant galaxies within the local to high-redshift Universe. I investigate the internal (mass, angular momentum) and environmental factors responsible for galaxy diversity in properties such as morphology, chemical content and dark matter content, mapping their evolution over cosmic time.
