We are a long way from having a complete theory of star formation. In
this talk I describe a number of projects through which we can attempt
to understand how star formation, particularly massive star formation,
occurs in a range of galactic environments. We start with massive star
and star cluster formation in our local Galactic neighborhood,
exemplified by the Orion Nebula Cluster. We look for differences
between star formation in dwarf irregular and spiral
galaxies. Continuing to the environs of supermassive black holes, we
find star formation is a natural and important part of their accretion
process. Finally we apply the knowledge we have gained about local
star formation to make a theoretical prediction for how it occurs in
the high redshift, metal-free universe.
