Hot Stars and Stellar Winds

Wind from the star LL Orionis generating a bow shock (the bright arc) as it collides with material in the surrounding Orion Nebula.

What we do

In particular, we provide theoretical background and computational tools to investigate different populations of massive stars, in the Milky Way, the Magellanic Clouds, and low-metallicity Local Group galaxies. These investigations are performed using various observational surveys in the optical and partly UV, such as FLAMES I and II, ULLYSES, XshootU and IACOB. These international collaborations feature members from (among others) the Universities of Leuven (Belgium), Amsterdam (Netherlands), La Laguna (Tenerife, Spain) and Madrid (Spain).
