Dr Nathan Case

Senior Research Associate


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.
