Local Irregulars That Trace Luminosity Extremes;

The HI Nearby Galaxy Survey


This page is under construction.  It will host the results and discussion from my work with the LITTLE THINGS team, studying various aspects of dwarf galaxies.  I’ll fill in some details here and there as time allows.


LITTLE THINGS is an international collaboration organized to study the properties of dwarf galaxies through the most abundant species of gas in the universe: neutral hydrogen, or HI.    For more information about the LITTLE THINGS project, visit the official LT page here, and the NRAO data site here.


This is a map of where the 41 galaxies in the LT sample appear on the sky.  The red stars indicate galaxies that were observed with the Herschel Space Telescope as part of our campaign to study normal dwarfs in the far infrared.
