Title: Connecting 3D Observations and Simulations of Star Formation in Our Local ISM

Our understanding of our local galaxy has been completely transformed by Gaia. In this talk, I will explain how we have used 3D data products derived from Gaia to build the first high-resolution 3D model of the Orion star-forming region featuring gas, dust, and stars. Building on this model and others we have constructed in 3D (Perseus, Taurus, the Radcliffe Wave, and the Local Bubble), we have been able to construct new theories about the history of stellar feedback in the local ISM. I will discuss how we are beginning to test some of these theories with a simulation suite of isolated shock-turbulence interactions. Finally, I will conclude with how these observations and simulations can be coupled to extragalactic observations, particularly those conducted by the PHANGS survey.
