Hey! I’m writing an email to a professor for research and I am mentioning some things I’ve found interesting and trying to connect them to his research but I’m not exactly sure if I’ve gotten the gist of these topics right ; like for example if dark matter and stuff effects the structure or dynamics of galaxies and galaxy clusters like I’ve said I’d be interested in learning.

Could someone look over my draft for the email and help me out a bit?

I want to make sure I’ve gotten the right stuff down.

Here they are:

|||Galaxy structures and the type/composition of stars
The birth of galaxies
Spectroscopy and photometry
The dynamics of galaxy clusters
what holds the clusters as well as the galaxies themselves together
the forces that govern the mechanics of the galaxies in clusters (dark matter more specifically)
Effects of stellar evolution on galaxy evolution |||

I can private message the science part of my email!
Post the relevant part here. PM's of that sort are discouraged on this forum.

What does that mean? What is the exact purpose of the email?

Galactic Structure and Stellar Structure are pretty widely different - I'd put them on 2 separate lines. Spectroscopy and photometry are extremely broad topics, if you're interest is actually in stellar, galactic, and galactic cluster structure, it might not be worth it to mention those here. There are effects of stellar evolution on galactic evolution, but that's quite a narrow topic that seems to be much narrower than the others mentioned.
