Dr Caroline Clewley (née Van Breukelen) is in charge of the development of the I-Explore STEMM modules portfolio, and is one of the founders of Imperial Visualisations.

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 a position at the Imperial College Physics Department, where she became a Principal Teaching Fellow. During this time, she also gained an MEd in University Learning and Teaching. She is now actively engaged in STEM Higher Education Research, with a particular interest in staff-student partnerships as well as developing students' identity and self-efficacy.
