Galaxy Clusters in the Distant Universe

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound systems in the universe and are extreme laboratories for studying the physics driving galaxy evolution as well as powerful tests of cosmology. Understanding how galaxies form and evolve in clusters continues to be a fundamental question in astronomy. I present results from an ongoing multi-wavelength study of galaxies in clusters at z>1.5 to track how they assemble their stars.
