Star Formation in Irregular Galaxies - Dr Vince McIntyre Colloquium

Irregular galaxies are interesting settings to examine star formation
processes because their ISM experiences much lower rotational shear and
does not undergo regular stimulus from spiral density wave passages.
In this talk I present a close inspection of two nearby Magellanic
Irregulars, NGC 1156 and NGC 4214. We shall examine the distribution
and kinematics of the neutral and ionised gas over a wide range of
angular scales, and make comparisons with the stellar population,
looking to understand what processes are driving new stars to form
in these galaxies.
