She is presently leading two international surveys of the Milky Way, and will be joining a CAR team that is leading a large number of other major surveys in the coming years.
CAR, which is located within the Science and Technology Research Institute, has a world class research profile. Professor Drew will join four other Professors in the Centre plus around 50 other research staff.
Professor Drew was University Lecturer and Tutorial Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford University before moving to Imperial College where she became first Reader in 1996 and then Professor of Astrophysics in 1999.
She is also a Caroline Herschel Visiting Fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute, is on the selection panel for the Royal Society’s Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship, is on the board of editors for the major astrophysics journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and has sat on numerous Research Council panels.
Professor John Senior, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research) at the University of Hertfordshire said: "We are delighted that Professor Drew will be joining the University in October as her research interests and expertise complement well the existing world class research being carried out in our Centre for Astrophysics Research. Her future activities will therefore contribute to the continuing growth of this dynamic research centre undertaking leading edge astrophysics research.”

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
