Currently my research entails the studying of large-scale galaxy clusters of differing environments via their global dynamics married against the cluster galaxies’ peculiar motions (the internal kinematics of galaxy cluster members). The basics that underpin my studies involve the use of archival observational data from large public surveys, such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), to obtain information on the intrinsic properties on each cluster galaxy. There is a great potential for the direction of work in this area, and as of this moment, help formulate the on-going questions that are being addressed for my PhD thesis:
- How do differing cluster evolutionary epochs affect the kinematic properties of galaxy cluster sub-populations? (Bilton & Pimbblet, 2018)
- How do cluster galaxies gain their angular momentum? (Bilton et al., 2019)
- How do AGN-hosting cluster galaxies drive the kinematics and dynamics of galaxy clusters? (In Press)
