Dr Caroline Clewley (née Van Breukelen) is a Senior Teaching Fellow at the Department of Physics.

Her research background is in Astrophysics with a focus on Observational Cosmology: in 2007 she obtained a PhD at the University of Oxford, researching the most distant galaxy clusters.

Afterwards, she spent two years at UCL as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, funded by the STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council). In September 2009 she took up her current post at Imperial College. She is now actively engaged in Physics Education Research.
