We present 3, 15, and 33 GHz imaging toward galaxy nuclei and extranuclear star-forming regions using the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array as part of the Star Formation in Radio Survey. With 3–33 GHz radio spectra, we measured the spectral indices and corresponding thermal (free–free) emission fractions for a sample of 335 discrete regions having significant detections in at least two radio bands. After removing 14 likely background galaxies, we find that the median thermal fraction at 33 GHz is… 
COLDz: Deep 34 GHz Continuum Observations and Free–Free Emission in High-redshift Star-forming Galaxies
The high-frequency radio sky has historically remained largely unexplored due to the typical faintness of sources in this regime, and the modest survey speed compared to observations at lower
Super Star Clusters in the Central Starburst of NGC 4945
The nearby (3.8 Mpc) galaxy NGC 4945 hosts a nuclear starburst and Seyfert type 2 active galactic nucleus (AGN). We use the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to image the 93 GHz
A Comparison between Nuclear Ring Star Formation in LIRGs and in Normal Galaxies with the Very Large Array
Nuclear rings are excellent laboratories for studying intense star formation. We present results from a study of nuclear star-forming rings in five nearby normal galaxies from the Star Formation in

Revisiting Attenuation Curves: The Case of NGC 3351
Multiwavelength images from the far-UV (∼0.15 μm) to the submillimeter of the central region of the galaxy NGC 3351 are analyzed to constrain its stellar populations and dust attenuation. Despite
Reconstructing the EUV Spectrum of Star-forming Regions from Millimeter Recombination Lines of H i, He i, and He ii
The extreme ultraviolet (EUV) spectra of distant star-forming regions cannot be probed directly using either ground- or space-based telescopes due to the high cross section for interaction of EUV
Paβ, Hα, and Attenuation in NGC 5194 and NGC 6946
We combine Hubble Space Telescope Paschen β (Paβ) imaging with ground-based, previously published Hα maps to estimate the attenuation affecting Hα, A(Hα), across the nearby, face-on galaxies NGC 5194
Radio afterglows from compact binary coalescences: prospects for next-generation telescopes
The detection of gravitational waves from a neutron star merger, GW170817, marked the dawn of a new era in time-domain astronomy. Monitoring of the radio emission produced by the merger, including
