Dr Ruth Corrigan

1

Teacher of Physics

BSc in Physics – Queen’s University of Belfast.

PhD in Astrophysics – University of Cambridge – Thesis Title: Observational Manifestations of Gravitation Lenses.

PGCE Secondary Physics – Durham University

After completing her PGCE in Secondary Physics, Ruth worked at an excellent school in England for three years teaching Maths to KS3 and KS4, Science to KS3 and Physics to KS3, KS4 and KS5.

Prior to working in education Ruth worked first as a research astrophysicist. During her PhD she was involved in the first detection of a gravitational microlensing event and wrote a seminal paper in the field. She continued her astrophysics research at Imperial College London publishing further papers in gravitational lensing and X-Ray astronomy. Ruth then embarked on a career in finance which involved investment banking roles in London and Frankfurt as well as Hedge Fund and Regulatory roles in Dublin. Ruth integrates this experience into her teaching and extra-curricular work at school.

Ruth is a keen musician, playing oboe and cor anglais. She also has a passion for the ocean and loves to explore the underwater environment in all conditions via scuba diving.
