Galaxy evolution

Our expertise includes studies on photometric and IR/sub-mm spectroscopic properties of star-forming galaxies and of AGN (Massardi et al. 2016, 2018, Bonato et al. 2014a,b, 2015, 2017a), and on the galaxy and AGN (co-)evolution models (Massardi et al. 2010b, Bonato et al. 2014a,b, 2017b, 2019a). We have developed theoretical galaxy evolution models both in the IR (Bonato et al. 2014a,b, 2019a) and in the radio regime (Massardi et al. 2010, Bonato et al. 2017b). In the cited papers, we have used our models to work out predictions for observations with different facilities, such as the SPace IR telescope for Cosmology and Astrophysics (SPICA), the Origins Space Telescope (OST) and the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). Our expertise is not limited to individual or populations of galaxies, but it also includes analysis of properties and modelling of galaxy clusters (Massardi & De Zotti 2004, Massardi et al. 2010a).
