A principal goal of astronomy is to describe and understand how galaxies evolve as the
Universe ages. To understand the processes that drive evolution, one needs to investigate the
connections between various properties of galaxies, such as mass, star-formation rate (SFR),
and morphology, in a quantitative manner. The last of the these properties, morphology,
refers to the two-dimensional appearance of a galaxy projected onto the plane of the sky
