My main area of research is star formation, although I also work with Roger Chevalier on gamma-ray bursts, and Phil Arras on extrasolar planets. I work on many aspects of star formation, including the production of jets and winds, the generation of dense cores and disks, and the formation of binaries, multiple systems, and stellar clusters. Although a theorist, I collaborate closely with observers on projects using BLASTpol, VLA and especially ALMA.
