We will undertake a tiered extragalactic continuum survey with MeerKAT to investigate the evolution of AGN, star-forming galaxies and galaxy clusters from the epoch of reionization through to the present day. Our project will fully utilize MeerKAT’s unique capabilities, namely high-resolution coupled with a large survey speed, to undertake a five-tier survey strategy at 1.4 GHz. The combination of resolution and sensitivity (outperforming both ASKAP and EVLA) will allow us to make the most precise measurement of the radio luminosity function for radio-loud & radio-quiet AGN and star-forming galaxies over the full range in radio luminosity.
