We report on the discovery of new members of nearby young moving groups, exploiting the full power of combining the RAVE survey with several stellar age diagnostic methods and follow-up high-resolution optical spectroscopy. The results include the identification of one new and five likely members of the beta Pictoris moving group, ranging from spectral types F9 to M4 with the majority being M dwarfs, one K7 likely member of the epsilon Cha group and two stars in the Tuc-Hor association.

Unveiling new members in five nearby young moving groups
In the last decade many kinematic groups of young stars (< 100 Myr) were discovered in the solar neighbourhood. Since the most interesting period of planet formation overlaps with the age of theseExpand
Searching for new young stars in the Northern hemisphere: the Pisces moving group
Using the kinematically unbiased technique described in Binks, Jeffries & Maxted (2015), we present optical spectra for a further 122 rapidly-rotating (rotation periods < 6 days), X-ray active FGKExpand

[Abbreviated] We present the results of a near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic follow-up survey of 182 M4-L7 low-mass stars and brown dwarfs (BDs) from the BANYAN All-Sky Survey (BASS) for candidateExpand
The star formation history and accretion-disc fraction among the K-type members of the Scorpius–Centaurus OB association
We present results of a spectroscopic survey for new K- and M-type members of Scorpius-Centaurus (Sco-Cen), the nearest OB Association (~100-200 pc). Using an X-ray, proper motion and color-magnitudeExpand
Reaching the boundary between stellar kinematic groups and very wide binaries III. Sixteen new stars and eight new wide systems in the β Pictoris moving group
The unexpected large number of high-order multiple systems, 12 triples and two quadruples among 36 systems, may suggest a biased list of members towards close binaries or an increment of the high- order-multiple fraction for very wide systems. Expand
Re-examining the membership and origin of the € Cha association
We present a comprehensive investigation of the Epsilon Chamaeleontis association (Epsilon Cha), one of several young moving groups spread across the southern sky. We re-assess the putativeExpand
