Brenda Frye is making a concerted effort to understand how galaxies and galaxy structures evolve over time. To do this requires detection of the dark matter, a task that is facilitated by using the tool of gravitational lensing. Frye extends the study of galaxy clusters to earlier cosmic times by a novel use of the Planck telescope.
