Title: Dissecting Galaxy Evolution with Targeted Surveys

Abstract:  I will describe several recent and on-going projects by my group aimed at probing galaxy evolution by targeting key areas of parameter space, selected from large surveys. These include the stellar mass growth of the most massive galaxies in clusters; the star-formation properties of the lowest mass galaxies in the distant Universe (ROLES); and the properties of galaxies in distant clusters from the Gemini Large Program, GOGREEN
