Carolin Crawford is an observational astronomer with over twenty years of active research experience, carried out alongside – and later eclipsed by – a growing role in the public communication of science. Carolin is just finishing a four-year term as the Professor of Astronomy for Gresham College, a role she combines with admissions and undergraduate teaching for Emmanuel College, and running an active public outreach programme at the Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge University. She gives many presentations each year to a wide range of audiences, and can often be heard discussing astronomical matters on both national and local radio. Carolin is a confirmed speaker at this year’s International Astronomy Show, and will be bringing us up to speed with the latest developments in ‘Dark energy and the ever expanding Universe’.
