Senior Lecturer in Astrophysics, University of Hertfordshire


Carolyn Devereux is a senior lecturer in astrophysics at the Centre for Astrophysics Research at the University of Hertfordshire. Her particular research interest is in developing our understanding of the role of dark matter in the evolution of the Large Scale Structure of the Universe, also called the ‘Cosmic Web’. After completing her degree in Physics from the University of Birmingham, she gained a PhD from University College London while working at the Hirst Research Centre in London researching ferroelectric liquid crystals. After working in industry she had a career break but continued her scientific journey by studying astronomy resulting in a career change into cosmology research. She likes to share her wonder at what we know about the Universe through lectures and events for the general public and in her book, "Cosmological Clues - Evidence for the Big Bang, Dark Matter and Dark Energy."
