Photography by GREGG ELIGH

SARA ELLISON CAN TELL YOU ALL KINDS OF THINGS ABOUT A DISTANT GALAXY, like its chemical components, stage of evolution, or distance. She does it by looking at the light from distant quasars and the ways its spectrum gets jumbled and absorbed by the dust, gasses, and stars it encounters on its long journey across the universe and into a telescope. Ellison, the Canada Research Chair-holder in observational cosmology, is a new member of the Astronomy department’s talented galaxy research group.
