Speakers: Dr Mark Westmoquette

Modern astronomy is concerned with understanding the evolution of the Universe. Stars are one of the primary drivers of this change, and one of the most dramatic ways of creating new stars is through a starburst. I will discuss how starbursts are defined, where they are found, what they are made of, and what consequences they have for their host galaxies and the Universe as a whole. I will end by describing some of the work I have been doing in this field.
Tea/coffee at 18:00 and after the talk.
