Carolin Crawford combines her college roles with her work at the Institute of Astronomy, where she studies the properties of the most massive galaxies in the Universe, using data collected from the largest ground-based and space telescopes.

Carolin combines her research and teaching with her other passion – communicating her love of astronomy to as wide an audience as possible. She is the current Professor of Astronomy at Gresham College, London, and runs the outreach programme at the Institute of Astronomy. She gives many talks on a wide range of astronomical topics to a variety of audiences, and is a regular contributor to both national and local radio programmes. In 2009 Carolin was noted as one of the UKRC ’s Women of Outstanding Achievement for the communication of science with a contribution to society.
