Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Ian Smail mostly deals with Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Redshift and Star formation. His studies in Luminous infrared galaxy, Luminosity, Elliptical galaxy, Stellar mass and Chandra Deep Field South are all subfields of Astrophysics research. As part of his studies on Galaxy, Ian Smail frequently links adjacent subjects like Universe.

The Redshift study which covers James Clerk Maxwell Telescope that intersects with Hubble Deep Field. The Star formation study combines topics in areas such as Dark matter and Spectral index. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Galaxy formation and evolution, focusing on Cosmology and, on occasion, Millimeter.

His most cited work include:

  • The UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS) (2111 citations)
  • A Redshift Survey of the Submillimeter Galaxy Population (1131 citations)
  • A Deep Submillimeter Survey of Lensing Clusters: A New Window on Galaxy Formation and Evolution (975 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Star formation. His study in Luminous infrared galaxy, Luminosity, Galaxy formation and evolution, Active galactic nucleus and Galaxy cluster is carried out as part of his Astrophysics studies. His work is dedicated to discovering how Luminosity, Halo are connected with Dark matter and other disciplines.

Ian Smail combines subjects such as Photometry and Emission spectrum with his study of Galaxy. In his study, Submillimeter Array is strongly linked to Millimeter, which falls under the umbrella field of Redshift. Ian Smail interconnects Spectral line, Universe, Interstellar medium and COSMIC cancer database in the investigation of issues within Star formation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (99.14%)
  • Galaxy (86.99%)
  • Redshift (53.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (99.14%)
  • Galaxy (86.99%)
  • Redshift (53.40%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Star formation and Stellar mass. Astrophysics connects with themes related to Emission spectrum in his study. His Galaxy study results in a more complete grasp of Astronomy.

In his research, Atacama Large Millimeter Array is intimately related to Luminous infrared galaxy, which falls under the overarching field of Redshift. Ian Smail has included themes like Intergalactic travel, Infrared, Spectral line, Ionization and Universe in his Star formation study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Metallicity, Dark matter and Angular momentum in addition to Stellar mass.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The SCUBA-2 Cosmology Legacy Survey: 850 μm maps, catalogues and number counts (204 citations)
  • An ALMA Survey of Submillimeter Galaxies in the Extended Chandra Deep Field South: Spectroscopic Redshifts (92 citations)
  • An ALMA survey of submillimetre galaxies in the Extended Chandra Deep Field South: Spectroscopic redshifts (90 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Star formation and Luminosity. His Astrophysics research includes elements of Astronomy and Emission spectrum. The various areas that he examines in his Redshift study include Resolution and Photometry.

Ian Smail has researched Star formation in several fields, including COSMIC cancer database, Universe, Active galactic nucleus and Dark matter. His Luminosity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Line, Spectral line and Spectroscopy. His Galaxy formation and evolution research focuses on Elliptical galaxy and how it relates to Metallicity, Accretion, Galaxy cluster and Radio galaxy.
