Dr Clare Burrage has been awarded the Maxwell medal and prize by the Institute of Physics (IOP) for outstanding contributions to the field of dark energy research.

The award is presented to Dr Burrage, Royal Society University Research Fellow and proleptic lecturer in The University of Nottingham’s School of Physics and Astronomy, for her research into dark energy, in particular for the development of methods of testing for fifth forces from astrophysical probes through to atom interferometry experiments.
