AN ASTRONOMER from the University of Portsmouth has once again been short-listed for the Women of the Future Science award.

Dr Karen Masters, a senior lecturer from the university’s Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG), has been nominated for her research into understanding how galaxies form and evolve in our universe.

Karen was also nominated in 2009 when she received a special commendation for being an exceptional candidate.

Karen said: ‘It’s wonderful to be short-listed again.

‘It was a great experience five years ago, a really inspirational evening, and I look forward to attending again to meet with all the amazing women short-listed in the many categories.’
