Research overview

Nathan currently studies the dynamics of the Earth's magnetosphere, a magnetic "bubble" created by the interaction between the Earth's magnetic field and the solar wind. He is specifically interested in how the interlinked solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere system evolves over time.

Past research has included working on the Aurorasaurus citizen science project, collecting observations of the aurora (northern lights) from citizen scientists and using them for scientific study. Nathan's background was investigating the solar wind, from its journey in interplanetary space to its arrival at Earth, and the effects it has on the location of the Earth's magnetopause (the outer edge of the magnetosphere).

Profile

Nathan is a space physicist studying the interaction between the solar wind and the Earth's magnetosphere. He works with Dr. Adrian Grocott and other members of the SPP research group in the Department of Physics.

Nathan is also a member of the AuroraWatch UK team, and takes an active interest in topics such as the aurora, citizen science, and science outreach.
