Dr. Larry Bradley is an astrophysicist and software engineer at the Space Telescope Science Institute. His research interests are in the field of observational extragalactic astronomy, focusing on the formation and evolution of galaxies in the very early universe. He primarily uses the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes to find and study high-redshift Lyman-break galaxies, including those gravitationally lensed by massive galaxy clusters.
He serves as the Deputy PI of the Reionization Lensing Cluster Survey (RELICS), a Hubble Space Telescope Treasury program. He is also a member of the Cluster Lensing and Supernova survey with Hubble (CLASH), Brightest of Reionizing Galaxies (BoRG), and Hubble Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) Science teams as well as a science advisor to the Hubble Frontier Fields program.
