We perform a sequence of 3D magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of the outflow-core interaction for a massive protostar forming via collapse of an initial cloud core of $60~{M_\odot}$. This allows us to characterize the properties of disk wind driven outflows from massive protostars, which can allow testing of different massive star formation theories. It also enables us to assess quantitatively the impact of outflow feedback on protostellar core morphology and overall star formation… 
Continuity of accretion from clumps to Class 0 high-mass protostars in SDC335
Context. The infrared dark cloud (IRDC) SDC335.579-0.292 (hereafter, SDC335) is a massive (~5000 M⊙) star-forming cloud which has been found to be globally collapsing towards one of the most massive
Measuring the ionisation fraction in a jet from a massive protostar
TLDR
The ionisation fraction of protostellar jets is determined in a jet from a high-mass young stellar object, using multi-wavelengths observations, confirming that the ionising mechanism giving rise to the radio emission originates from shocks.
The Role of Outflows, Radiation Pressure, and Magnetic Fields in Massive Star Formation
Stellar feedback in the form of radiation pressure and magnetically-driven collimated outflows may limit the maximum mass that a star can achieve and affect the star-formation efficiency of massive
Discovery of a Photoionized Bipolar Outflow toward the Massive Protostar G45.47+0.05
Massive protostars generate strong radiation feedback, which may help set the mass they achieve by the end of the accretion process. Studying such feedback is therefore crucial for understanding the
Multi-scale view of star formation in IRAS 21078+5211: from clump fragmentation to disk wind
In the massive star-forming region IRAS 21078+5211, a highly fragmented cluster (0.1~pc in size) of molecular cores is observed, located at the density peak of an elongated (1~pc in size) molecular
The SOFIA Massive (SOMA) Star Formation Survey. III. From Intermediate- to High-mass Protostars
We present $\sim10-40\,\mu$m SOFIA-FORCAST images of 14 intermediate-mass protostar candidates as part of the SOFIA Massive (SOMA) Star Formation Survey. We build spectral energy distributions
The SOMA Radio Survey. I. Comprehensive SEDs of High-mass Protostars from Infrared to Radio and the Emergence of Ionization Feedback
We study centimeter continuum emission of eight high- and intermediate-mass protostars that are part of the SOFIA Massive (SOMA) Star Formation Survey, thus building extended spectral energy

Jets and outflows of massive protostars
Context. Massive stars live short but intense lives. While less numerous than low-mass stars, they enormously impact their surroundings by several feedback mechanisms. They form in opaque and
