Julien Chauchat


Marco Colombini


Christoph Federrath

Postdoc at Monash University; Research: star formation, turbulence, sink particles, MHD, jets/outflows; Homepage

Greg Huber

is a biophysicist and Deputy Director at the KITP.

Cameron Hummels

Postdoc at University of Arizona; Research: star formation feedback, circumgalactic medium, galactic gas accretion and outflows, numerical methods; Developer for Enzo and yt codes; Homepage

Mikhail Klassen

PhD Candidate at McMaster University supervised by Ralph Pudritz, working on radiative transfer in star formation simulations. Our aim is to simulate the formation of massive stars in turbulent, magnetized clusters in molecular cloud clumps.

Federico Marinacci

Postdoc at Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies; Research: star formation & feedback, (disk) galaxy formation, circumgalactic medium, galactic fountains, hydrodynamic simulations.

Christopher Matzner
is a professor at the University of Toronto who studies collapse dynamics and energy and momentum feedback in star and star cluster formation, and the dynamics of supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, and stellar tidal disruption events.

Joseph Munoz

is a postdoc at UCSB working on the formation of stars and galaxies in the early universe, its enrichment of the ISM, and its feedback into the IGM; Homepage

Norman Murray

is the director of the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics and works on planet, star, and galaxy formation.

Eve Ostriker

is a professor of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton, and is co-coordinating this program. Her interest in the physics of star formation feedback spans a range of scales, from individual star-disk systems to galaxies.

Christoph Pfrommer

is a Senior Research Associate at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies and works in topics related to cosmological structure formation (galaxies, galaxy clusters) and high-energy astrophysics (cosmic rays, magnetic fields, blazars). He is particularly interested how cosmic-ray feedback drives galactic winds and heats cluster cool cores. Homepage

Ralph Pudritz

is the Director of the Origins Institute and Professor (Physics and Astronomy) at McMaser University, and works on the formation of stars and planets. Star formation - a wide variety of physical scales from filamentary GMCs, cluster formation, radiative feedback and MHD, outflows and jets, disk formation, and protostellar spins. Planet formation - planet migration and core accretion models, particularly planet trap models and connections to protostellar disk structure and composition.
