Rosie Braunholtz


Hello! I'm Rosie and I studied Physics and Astrophysics at university. The stars have always given me a sense of wonder since I was a child - I think it has for many people. I love knowing that we're just a very small part of a much bigger universe. I enjoy teaching and sharing knowledge with others which is why I was attracted to Kielder Observatory.
