  journal={The Astrophysical Journal},
We used the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to observe the semiforbidden C iii] λλ1907, 1909 doublet emission in green pea galaxies at 0.13 ≤ z ≤ 0.3. We detect C iii] emission in 7/10 galaxies with C iii] equivalent widths (EWs) that range from 2 to 10 Å, confirming that C iii] emission is almost ubiquitous in low-mass, low-metallicity (12+log(O/H) < 8.4) galaxies that are characterized by strong optical [O iii] λ5007 emission. The composite UV spectrum… 
The Effects of Stellar Population and Gas Covering Fraction on the Emergent Lyα Emission of High-redshift Galaxies
We perform joint modeling of the composite rest-frame far-UV and optical spectra of redshift 1.85 ≤ z ≤ 3.49 star-forming galaxies to deduce key properties of the massive stars, ionized interstellar
The COS Legacy Archive Spectroscopy Survey (CLASSY) Treasury Atlas
Far-ultraviolet (FUV; ∼1200–2000 Å) spectra are fundamental to our understanding of star-forming galaxies, providing a unique window on massive stellar populations, chemical evolution, feedback
Emission-line Wings Driven by Lyman Continuum in the Green Pea Analog Mrk 71
We propose that the origin of faint, broad emission-line wings in the Green Pea (GP) analog Mrk 71 is a clumpy, LyC, and/or Lyα-driven superwind. Our spatially resolved analysis of Gemini-N/GMOS-IFU

For the extremely bright lensed galaxy SDSS J1723+3411 at z = 1.3293, we analyze spatially integrated MMT, Keck, and Hubble Space Telescope spectra that fully cover the rest-frame wavelength range of
Ultraviolet spectra of extreme nearby star-forming regions: Evidence for an overabundance of very massive stars
As deep spectroscopic campaigns extend to higher redshifts and lower stellar masses, the interpretation of galaxy spectra depends increasingly upon models for very young stellar populations. Here we

Analogues of primeval galaxies two billion years after the Big Bang
A selected group of intermediate-redshift galaxies appear similar to primeval galaxies. Analysing spectra of these nearer analogues for chemical abundances and ionization levels gives an improved
