Previous star formation studies have, out of necessity, often defined a population of young stars confined to the proximity of a molecular cloud. Gaia allows us to examine a wider, three-dimensional structure of nearby star forming regions, leading to a new understanding of their history. We present a wide-area survey covering 494 deg2 of the Lupus complex, a prototypical low-mass star forming region. Our survey includes all known molecular clouds in this region as well as parts of the Upper… 
Lupus DANCe
Context: Lupus is recognised as one of the closest star-forming regions, but the lack of trigonometric parallaxes in the pre-Gaia era hampered many studies on the kinematic properties of this region

I have used high-precision photometry and astrometry from the early installment of the third data release of Gaia (EDR3) to perform a survey for members of the stellar populations within the Sco-Cen
A survey for variable young stars with small telescopes – IV. Rotation periods of YSOs in IC 5070
Studying rotational variability of young stars is enabling us to investigate a multitude of properties of young star-disc systems. We utilize high cadence, multiwavelength optical time series data
Spectroscopy of Candidate Members of the Sco-Cen Complex
We present spectroscopy of 285 previously identified candidate members of populations in the Sco-Cen complex, primarily Ophiuchus, Upper Sco, and Lupus. The spectra are used to measure spectral types
The substructure of the Perseus star-forming region: a survey with Gaia DR2
We use photometric and kinematic data from Gaia DR2 to explore the structure of the star forming region associated with the molecular cloud of Perseus. Apart from the two well known clusters, IC 348


Post-T Tauri Stars in the Nearest OB Association
We present results of a spectroscopic survey of X-ray– and proper-motion–selected samples of late-type stars in the Lower Centaurus–Crux (LCC) and Upper Centaurus–Lupus (UCL) subgroups of the nearest
A new compact young moving group around V1062 Scorpii
Aims. We are searching for new open clusters or moving groups in the solar neighbourhood. Methods. We used the Gaia-TGAS catalogue, cut it into narrow proper motion and parallax slices and searched
Recent star formation in the Lupus clouds as seen by Herschel
We present a study of the star formation histories of the Lupus I, III, and IV clouds using the Herschel 70-500 micron maps obtained by the Herschel Gould Belt Survey Key Project. By combining the
To improve the census of the Upper Sco association, candidate members are identified using parallaxes, proper motions, and color-magnitude diagrams from several wide-field imaging surveys and optical and infrared spectra of several hundred candidates are obtained to measure their spectral types and assess their membership.
SONYC—Substellar Objects in Nearby Young Clusters—is a survey program to investigate the frequency and properties of substellar objects in nearby star-forming regions. We present a new imaging and
X-shooter spectroscopy of young stellar objects in Lupus. Accretion properties of class II and transitional objects
The mass accretion rate, Ṁ acc , is a key quantity for the understanding of the physical processes governing the evolution of accretion discs around young low-mass ( M ⋆  ≲ 2.0 M ⊙ ) stars and
The Spitzer c2d survey of weak-line T Tauri stars. II. New constraints on the timescale for planet building
One of the central goals of the Spitzer Legacy Project ``From Cores to Disks'' (c2d) is to determine the frequency of circumstellar disks around weak-line T Tauri stars (WTTSs) and to study the
Spitzer observations of NGC 2264: the nature of the disk population
Aims. NGC2264 is a young cluster with a rich circumstellar disk population which makes it an ideal target for studying the evolution of stellar clusters. Our goal is to study the star formation
Spitzer Observations of IC 348: The Disk Population at 2-3 Million Years
We present near- and mid-infrared photometry obtained with the Spitzer Space Telescope of ~300 known members of the IC 348 cluster. We merge this photometry with existing ground-based optical and
New low-mass members of the Lupus 3 dark cloud : further indications of pre-main-sequence evolution strongly affected by accretion.
A spectroscopic survey of a small area at the center of the Lupus 3 star-forming core has revealed four new mid-to-late M-type members, including a M7.5 brown dwarf. One of the new members,
