We present the results from a wide-field imaging study of globular cluster (GC) systems in three early-type galaxies. Combinations of Subaru/Suprime-Cam, Canada–France–Hawaii Telescope/MegaCam and Hubble Space Telescope/Wide Field Planetary Camera 2/Advanced Camera for Surveys data were used to determine the GC system properties of three highly flattened galaxies NGC 720, NGC 1023 and NGC 2768. This work is the first investigation of the GC system in NGC 720 and NGC 2768 to very large… 

Unveiling the globular cluster systems of early-type galaxies using wide-field imaging

Globular cluster (GC) systems can be used as powerful tools to investigate the evolutionary history of early-type galaxies. In this thesis, we study the GC systems of five early-type galaxies using

We present a study of the spatial and color distributions of four early-type galaxies and their globular cluster (GC) systems observed as part of our ongoing wide-field imaging survey. We use BVR

Early-type galaxies in low-density environments: NGC 6876 explored through its globular cluster system

We present the results of a photometric study of the early-type galaxy NGC 6876 and the surrounding globular cluster (GC) system. The host galaxy is a massive elliptical, the brightest of this type

Spatial Structures in the Globular Cluster Distribution of Fornax Cluster Galaxies

We report the discovery of statistically significant spatial structures in the projected two-dimensional distributions of Globular Cluster (GC) systems of 10 galaxies that are among the brightest in

The SLUGGS survey: Combining stellar and globular cluster metallicities in the outer regions of early-type galaxies

The outer halo regions of early-type galaxies carry key information about their past accretion history. However, spectroscopically probing the stellar component at such galactocentric radii is still

The SLUGGS Survey: A Catalog of Over 4000 Globular Cluster Radial Velocities in 27 Nearby Early-type Galaxies

Here, we present positions and radial velocities for over 4000 globular clusters (GCs) in 27 nearby early-type galaxies from the SLUGGS survey. The SLUGGS survey is designed to be representative of

Globular cluster systems of relic galaxies

We analyse the globular cluster (GC) systems of a sample of 15 massive, compact early-type galaxies (ETGs), 13 of which have already been identified as good relic galaxy candidates on the basis of

The SLUGGS Survey: globular clusters and the dark matter content of early-type galaxies

A strong correlation exists between the total mass of a globular cluster (GC) system and the virial halo mass of the host galaxy. However, the total halo mass in this correlation is a statistical

The complex star cluster system of NGC 1316 (Fornax A)

This paper presents Gemini-$gri'$ high quality photometry for cluster candidates in the field of NGC 1316 (Fornax A) as part of a study that also includes GMOS spectroscopy. A preliminary discussion

The globular cluster system of the isolated elliptical NGC 6411: an old system in an intermediate-age galaxy?†

We present a photometric study of the isolated elliptical NGC 6411 and its globular cluster (GC) system, based on Gemini/GMOS g', r', i' photometry. This galaxy has been the host of a SNIa. Spectral
