Welcome!

I am a fifth (and final!) year PhD candidate in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University. I'm an observer broadly interested in questions of galaxy structure and stellar assembly, especially in low-mass systems.

You can find me at Peyton Hall in Office 022, or virtually at kadofong at princeton dot edu.
I can also be found on Github and on twitter as @erin_kadofong.

I also run the departmental public observing program; we host monthly observing and Q&A sessions for the general public. If you're looking for information on public observing, you can visit the Peyton Observatory website here.

About Me

I grew up in Davis, CA, a small-ish town in the valley of California. Unlike most small towns in the middle of farmland, there is a decent chance that you (likely an academic) know of my hometown as the location of UC Davis (go Aggies!).

I decamped to the East Coast in 2013 to get my bachelor's at Tufts University, where I was advised by Danilo Marchesini. In 2017, I moved down to Princeton for graduate school; my advisor is Jenny Greene.

You can find me at Peyton Hall in Office 014, or virtually at kadofong at princeton dot edu.

I can also be found on Github and technically also on Twitter, though I've never actually tweeted anything.

Data and Catalogs

Here are some catalogs and data releases for projects that I've worked on. If you're interested in catalog data associated with a project of mine that isn't listed below, feel free to shoot me an email.



The Merian SurveyMerian logo

I am a Co-I on the Merian Survey, a DECam survey of 100,000 starforming dwarfs at z~0.1. Merian will provide the first mass-complete sample of starforming dwarfs down to stellar masses of 108 solar masses over more than 800 sq. degrees on the sky with broadband imaging from the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP).

Survey website: here



Dwarf-Dwarf Mergers in HSC-SSP

A catalog of major mergers between dwarf galaxies at z<0.15 in the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program.

NASA ADS link for the associated paper: Kado-Fong et al. 2020

Associated Catalog: the VizieR Catalog Link can be found here



Tidal Features in HSC-SSP

A catalog of galaxies that host tidal features at z<0.45 in the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program, along with the morphological classification (shell/stream) of their tidal features.

NASA ADS link for the associated paper: Kado-Fong et al. 2018

Associated Catalog: the catalog can be found as CSV here



Multi-wavelength catalogs of the Hubble Frontier Fields

UV-IR catalogs of HFF galaxies with photometry, photometric redshifts, best-fit stellar population properties, and lensing magnification factors

NASA ADS link for the associated paper: Shipley et al. 2018

Associated Catalog: available at HFFDeepSpace



Rotation Periods for a Sample of M-Dwarfs in PS1-MDS

Here's a throwback: from my very first paper, a sample of rotating M-dwarfs in the PanSTARRS Medium-Deep Survey.

Research

Here is my CV, last updated 2021/06.

While I work on a dedicated page for ongoing research, here's my ADS record.

If you prefer ORCIDs, mine is 0000-0002-0332-177X.
