Carolina appointed AIMS NEI Director for Academic Development

Carolina Ödman, who has been with us as an SKA-funded post-doctoral fellow following her wonderful work developing the Universe Awareness project, has been appointed to the prestigious position of Director of Academic Development in the AIMS Next Einstein Initiative (NEI) team, and started 1st March 2011. The ideas behind AIMS NEI, which was recently funded by both Google and the Canadian government, are described in Neil’s TED prize talk. Carolina will help realise the ambitious AIMS vision of 15 new AIMS centres in Africa.

However we are very happy that Carolina will spend one third of her time in the AIMS Research Centre as part of the cosmology group, co-supervising students and organising research events such as the innovative dotAstronomy research workshops.
