About the General Meeting Presentation

Dr. Hartigan studies phenomena associated with young stars, including accretion disks, stellar jets and shock waves, and the characteristics of the young stars themselves. He uses the Hubble Space Telescope as well as ground-based telescopes, and combines these data with theoretical models to better understand how stars form in our galaxy, and to develop a picture of what conditions were like when our own solar system was born.
