Simon Rozier awarded Newton International Fellowship

Simon Rozier has been awarded a Newton International Fellowship: "The response of globular star clusters to their tidal environment". Simon will work with Anna Lisa Varri on this project which aims at exploring the nexus between the internal kinematic complexity of star clusters and the external perturbations induced by the galactic environment within which they evolve, to tackle the challenging problem of the formation of tidal streams from a progenitor stellar system with realistic characteristics.
