Research Interests

My research interests are in the formation of massive star clusters and how the energy and momentum injected by the most massive stars in these clusters—stellar feedback—can potentially eject material from their natal cloud. These feedback processes limit how much gas will be turned into stars and control the dynamics of HII regions. The types of feedback mechanisms I focus on are stellar winds and stellar radiation. I am currently working with Mark Krumholz and Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz.
