Dr Susan Hutton
Susan Hutton is a Daphne Jackson Fellow in the Department of Physics at the University of Surrey.
Susan initially studied for a degree in Aeronautical Engineering at Imperial College London, which was sponsored by British Airways and which required her to work for the company on it’s completion. Alongside her job, Susan completed a part time evening-based MSc in Astrophysics, eventually leaving her job to undertake her PhD in Astrophysics at University College London at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL). To help support her family Susan wrote up her PhD having returned to working part-time in industry.
Now in a position to return to Astrophysics research after a six year break, Susan will explore the idea of ‘warm dark matter’ by creating a model and applying this to data previously collected from dwarf galaxies.
Due to finish in 2025 her Fellowship is sponsored by the Science and Technology Facilities Council and her project is entitled: BRIDGE: Bringing light Into the Darkness of Galaxy Evolution
