In my research I am working on the production of realistic synthetic observations of star-formation sites (small to large scale) and how they can help us to analyse the physical processes behind star-formation. I especially focus on the testing and development of observational tools which can help us to infer robust physical properties of star-forming regions. I am also developing open source tools (e.g. the FLUXCOMPENSATOR), which enable the community to produce their own realistic synthetic observations.
