Education and career
De Moortel earned a master's degree in mathematics in 1997 at KU Leuven. She completed a Ph.D. in solar physics in 2001 at the University of St Andrews; her dissertation, Theoretical & Observational Aspects of Wave Propagation in the Solar Corona, was supervised by Alan Hood. She remained at St Andrews as a postdoctoral researcher and research fellow, becoming a reader there in 2008 and a professor in 2013.
In 2005, De Moortel became a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. In 2009 she won the Philip Leverhulme Prize in Astronomy and Astrophysics. She was elected to the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2015, and previously co-chaired its affiliate society, the Young Academy of Scotland.
