CARMA-NRO Orion Survey

The CARMA-NRO Orion Survey is the most detailed map ever made of Orion's star-forming giant molecular cloud. The high resolution of the CARMA array combined with the wide-angle view of the Nobeyama Radio Observatory allow us to study structures as small as 0.01 pc without missing the bigger picture.

Expanding Bubbles In Orion

Newborn stars can wreak havoc on their birth clouds, spewing out high speed jets and winds. We discovered a number of expanding bubbles of molecular gas around young stars in Orion. These bubbles may have been blown by winds from stars, and we estimated that they stir up the gas enough to hinder future star formation. Read my paper to learn more!

Statistics and Turbulence

We studied the statistical properties of turbulent gas in the Orion star forming region. We discovered a new correlation between the motions of gas and the density of young stars. Our paper has been accepted to the Astrophysical Journal, read it here! Image from Offner and Arce (2015).
