Dust plays critical roles in many of the processes occurring in the interstellar medium and dust’s infrared emission serves as a tracer for the ISM and star formation from the nearby universe out to high redshift. While most of our knowledge of dust is built from observations of the local area of the Milky Way, it is clear that dust properties change dramatically in low metallicity conditions which may be prevalent at high redshift and in nearby dwarf galaxies.

A universal understanding of galaxy formation requires observations of galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Although individual stars in distant galaxies are too faint for high-resolution spectroscopy, globular clusters (GCs) can be studied through integrated light (IL) s pectroscopy. Since GCs are expected to trace the properties of their host galaxies, distant clusters can be utilized in lieu of resolved stars to investigate the assembly histories of their hosts.
