Dr Katy Clough


STFC Ernest Rutherford Research Fellow

Room Number: Mathematical Sciences Building, Room: MB-225


Katy's research focuses on using numerical solutions to understand the consequences of Einstein's theory of general relativity, in particular concerning black hole environments and inhomogeneities in the early universe. She is a member of the Geometry, Analysis and Gravitation group in the School of Mathematical Sciences.



A list of my publications can be found at INSPIRE.


I encourage applications from students for PhD projects under my supervision. I particularly welcome applications from students from underrepresented groups in mathematical physics.

You can see the projects offered within our group here, which will be updated towards the end of each calendar year for entry to the programme in October the following year: 

If I have a project listed here in which you are interested, please get in contact with me around early December, as well as going through the formal application as detailed here.

Whilst C++ coding and use of high-performance computing will be a key part of my projects, potential students will not be required to have prior experience in these fields. Enthusiasm, tenacity, and a willingness to learn will be considered the most important attributes.

Note that QMUL offers numerous PhD studentships that can fund PhD fees and living costs - in particular I would highlight that two studentships are available annually for UK BAME applicants.
