Abstract: ALMA is a revolutionary new telescope that is dramatically expanding our understanding of the high-frequency radio sky. Astronomers are using ALMA to make exciting new discoveries in topics ranging from star and planet formation to galaxies in the distant universe. I will begin by highlighting some of the recent exciting results that illustrate the breadth of ALMA's science. I will then describe my recent work with my students and collaborators probing the relationship between molecular gas properties and star formation in merging galaxies.
