John Bally investigates the formation of stars, star clusters, and planetary systems using multii-wavelength observations with facilities such as HST, Spitzer, Herschel, ALMA, SOFIA, and a variety of ground based telescopes such as the VLA, Gemini, and the Apache Point Observatory.
He uses observations of forming stars, protostellar outflows and jets, ionized nebulae, super-bubbles, and the interstellar medium to study how star formation is self-regulated by various feedback mechanisms.
