Dr Kim Page obtained an MPhys in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Leicester, followed by a PhD in X-ray Astronomy also from Leicester. She has been a member of the Swift team since mid-2004, before the launch of the satellite, and helps to run the UK Swift Science Data Centre based at the University of Leicester.
