Last updated May 29, 2017 by Andrew Brown

Chris Spalding spent 8 weeks in CTAMOP during the summer of 2012 working with Professor Taylor and Dr Parker and has now been accepted as a PhD student in Astronomy at Caltech. The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has yet again maintained its first place in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings via the 2012-13 list. Chris hails from Newtownards and is now in his final year of a first degree course at Cambridge where he is top student of his year in Astrophysics. In a recent email to Professor Taylor, Chris stated: `I thought you might like to know that Caltech have responded and they have offered me a place! I’d like to thank you so much for all your help and for urging me to aim high because it worked!’
