Bradley Malko works with Lowell Observatory’s Dr. Deidre Hunter on the LITTLE THINGS project (Local Irregulars That Trace Luminosity Extremes and the HI Nearby Galaxy Survey).  By studying cold gas and star formation in these galaxies, she is helping to gain an understanding of star-forming processes in nearby dwarf irregular galaxies–how stars form from the interstellar medium and why the density of stars drops from the center of the galaxy outward.
