University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) • Postdoctoral Reasearcher

Dr. Guido ROBERTS-BORSANI is an astronomer and postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), working on galaxy formation and evolution over the first billion years of the Universe. Prior to this, he completed an MPhys degree in Astronomy, Space Science & Astrophysics at the University of Kent in 2014 and worked at the European Space Agency (ESTEC), before earning his PhD in astrophysics from the University College London (UCL) in 2019.

Dr. Roberts-Borsani specializes in pushing the capabilities of state of the art ground- and space-based telescopes (e.g., Keck, ALMA, Hubble, Spitzer, and now JWST) to search for and characterize the most distant galaxies in the Universe, pinpointing when the first sources formed and how they influenced their surroundings. In particular, Dr. Roberts-Borsani is a core member of the JWST GLASS-ERS team and is leading observational efforts with his expertise in the NIRISS and NIRSpec instruments over the Abell 2744 galaxy cluster, as well as his own Cycle 1 NIRSpec program to observe ultra-distant galaxies.
