I am currently an Astrophysics PhD student at the University of Leeds where I also completed my undergraduate and masters degrees in theoretical physics.
Most stars form in environments known as giant molecular clouds (GMC’s). The radiation, winds and supernovae from these stars can expel material out of the GMC meanwhile triggering/inhibiting further star formation. My research involves making use of state of the art codes and HPC facilities at the University of Leeds to perform numerical simulations of GMC formation and the subsequent feedback from massive stars into these environments.
