The Milky Way nuclear star cluster
Anja studies the stellar kinematics of the Milky Way nuclear star cluster in integrated light towards the half-light radius (4.2pc). She runs axisymmetric Jeans models and triaxial Schwarzschild models to understand the large-scale kinematics of the Milky Way nuclear star cluster.
Anja uses near-infrared K-band spectroscopy obtained with KMOS (VLT) of single resolved stars to study the star formation history of the Milky Way nuclear star cluster. The data extends to a larger spatial scale than previous stellar populations studies of the Galactic centre.
