Research interests

My research interests concern the formation of stars, their circumstellar disks and stellar evolution in general. I study these using complementary observational approaches. On the one hand I study larger samples of object which allows us to draw statistical conclusions on the global properties of for example Massive Young Stellar Objects, which I do in collaboration with Leeds colleagues Hoare and Lumsden on the RMS project. Another example is my ESO X-Shooter programme to study the spectra of a large number of Herbig Ae/Be stars, which are intermediate mass pre-Main Sequence stars. These studies are underpinned and informed by in-depth studies of smaller numbers of stars. In these investigations, I aim to probe ever closer to the star, which is of course where all the action happens, be it mass accretion or stellar outflows. I do this using a variety of cutting edge methods to reach the finest resolutions possible. Below are some selected papers with my PhD students and postdocs using techniques such as spectro-astrometry, spectropolarimetry and interferometry.
