Timo Prusti

Gaia Project Scientist

 

Main Research Fields

My scientific interests fall under topics related to star formation. These span studies of young star clusters in close by regions to research of disks around stars. At the moment work is focusing to utilise the Gaia DR2 as of 25 April 2018. Of special attention are young stellar populations in the Gould Belt region both to probe star formation processes, but also to understand the Gould Belt structure itself.
