Research Statement

UF has several very active research groups in the field of star formation and the interstellar medium. On the observational side, Profs. Lada, Eikenberry, Tan and Telesco are leading near and mid infrared surveys of embedded star clusters, galactic center star formation, local massive star formation and infrared dark clouds. Many of these observational projects involve instrumentation built at UF. Dr. Barnes is leading the Census of High and Medium-mass Protostars (CHaMP) multiwavelength survey of a large region of the southern Milky Way. On the theoretical side, Prof. Tan is developing models of massive star formation, star cluster formation, giant molecular cloud evolution and galactic-scale star formation.
