Stellar Cluster Group at LJMU


The stellar cluster group at LJMU works on nearly all aspects of clusters, from their formation out of massive clouds of gas and dust to their eventual destruction.  We use clusters to understand the formation and evolution of individual stars as well as tracers to study the origin of galaxies and how they have been built up over cosmic time.
