About the Author
Katy Clough studied Engineering Science at Oxford University, before embarking on a short-lived career in finance. An Open University degree in Physics inspired her to return to academia and she subsequently completed her PhD at King's College London under the supervision of Dr Eugene Lim. Her first postdoctoral position is at Goettingen University in Germany, the former home of many great physicists and mathematicians including Riemann, Noether, Hilbert, Planck and Heisenberg. From October 2018 she will return to Oxford for a second postdoctoral position in the Beecroft Institute of Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology.
