Cara Battersby

is at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. She works on the formation of high-mass stars, particularly in the extreme conditions found at the center of our Galaxy. She is also interested in the study of molecular clouds and the formation of star clusters. She is primarily an observer, working from mid-IR through radio wavelengths.

Alberto Bolatto

is at the Department of Astronomy of the University of Maryland, College Park. He works on extragalactic observations from mid-IR through radio, star formation on galactic scales, ISM, and feedback.

Stefano Bovino

is at the Hamburg Observatory. He works on low-metallicity star formation, astrochemistry, and gas-phase chemistry. He is also one of the developers of the chemistry package KROME.

Paola Caselli

is at the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Munich. She works on star and planet formation, astrochemistry, and molecular spectroscopy.

Diane Cormier

is at the University of Heidelberg. She works on the interstellar medium and star formation in nearby galaxies, using IR-mm observations and spectral synthesis models.

Carlos De Breuck

is at the European Southern Observatory. He is the ESO APEX Project Scientist and his research interest include multi-wavelength observations of high redshift radio galaxies, and dusty star-forming galaxies.

Robert Feldmann

is at the University of California, Berkeley. He works on galaxy formation simulations (esp. massive galaxies, galaxies in groups) and is interested in questions related to star formation on galactic scales, dust formation, CO emission etc.

Andrea Ferrara

is at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. He works on the formation of the first galaxies and black holes, and cosmic reionization.

Troels Haugbølle

is at the Centre for Star and Planet formation ( and the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark. He works on star formation, the interstellar medium, and protoplanetary disks using numerical models. (

Claudia Lagos

is at the University of Western Australia at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research. She works on galaxy formation and gas in the cosmic web.

Masami Ouchi

is at the University of Tokyo. He works on galaxy formation and cosmic reionization.

Stefania Salvadori

is at the Observatoire de Paris, in Paris. She works on early cosmic star formation, galaxy evolution, metal enrichment, and the connection between Local and high-redshift galaxies.

Raffaella Schneider

is at INAF/Astronomical Observatory of Rome. She works on high redshift star formation, metal and dust enrichment, the properties of the first galaxies and black holes.

Jonathan C. Tan

is at the University of Florida. His research is focussed on the origin of planets, stars, galaxies and black holes, and involves both theoretical and observational programs.
