Using spectroscopy from the Large Binocular Telescope and imaging from the Hubble Space Telescope we discovered the first strong galaxy lens at zlens > 1. The lens has a secure photometric redshift of z = 1.53  ±  0.09 and the source is spectroscopically confirmed at z = 3.417. The Einstein radius (0.″35; 3.0 kpc) encloses 7.6 × 1010 M☉, with an upper limit on the dark matter fraction of 60%. The highly magnified (40×) source galaxy has a very small stellar mass (∼108 M☉) and shows an extremely… 
A STELLAR VELOCITY DISPERSION FOR A STRONGLY LENSED, INTERMEDIATE-MASS QUIESCENT GALAXY AT z = 2.8
Measuring stellar velocity dispersions of quiescent galaxies beyond z ∼ 2 ?> is observationally challenging. Such measurements require near-infrared spectra with a continuum detection of at least
Planck’s dusty GEMS - III. A massive lensing galaxy with a bottom-heavy stellar initial mass function at z = 1.5
We study the properties of the foreground galaxy of the Ruby, the brightest gravitationally lensed high-redshift galaxy on the sub-millimeter sky as probed by the Planck satellite, and part of our
DISCOVERY OF A STRONG LENSING GALAXY EMBEDDED IN A CLUSTER AT z = 1.62
We identify a strong lensing galaxy in the cluster IRC 0218 (also known as XMM-LSS J02182−05102) that is spectroscopically confirmed to be at z = 1.62, making it the highest-redshift strong lens
Characterizing elusive, faint dusty star-forming galaxies: a lensed, optically undetected ALMA galaxy at z ~ 3.3
We present the serendipitous ALMA detection of a faint submillimeter galaxy (SMG) lensed by a foreground z ~ 1 galaxy. By optimizing the source detection to deblend the system, we accurately build
A giant galaxy in the young Universe with a massive ring
In the local (redshift z  ≈ 0) Universe, collisional ring galaxies make up only ~0.01% of galaxies 1 and are formed by head-on galactic collisions that trigger radially propagating density waves 2 –
EVIDENCE OF VERY LOW METALLICITY AND HIGH IONIZATION STATE IN A STRONGLY LENSED, STAR-FORMING DWARF GALAXY AT z = 3.417
We investigate the gas-phase metallicity and Lyman continuum (LyC) escape fraction of a strongly gravitationally lensed, extreme emission-line galaxy at z = 3.417, J1000+0221S, recently discovered by
HIGH-PRECISION PHOTOMETRIC REDSHIFTS FROM SPITZER/IRAC: EXTREME [3.6] – [4.5] COLORS IDENTIFY GALAXIES IN THE REDSHIFT RANGE z ∼ 6.6 – 6.9
One of the most challenging aspects of studying galaxies in the z ≳ 7 ?> universe is the infrequent confirmation of their redshifts through spectroscopy, a phenomenon thought to occur from the

CLASH: EXTREME EMISSION-LINE GALAXIES AND THEIR IMPLICATION ON SELECTION OF HIGH-REDSHIFT GALAXIES
We utilize the Cluster Lensing And Supernova survey with Hubble observations of 25 clusters to search for extreme emission-line galaxies (EELGs). The selections are carried out in two central bands:
