A sad day today as we bid a fond farewell to Nathan Church. Nate’s been in the group since 2006 as a PhD student, post doc and all round good egg. Nate’s last three years have been working on magnetism in meteorites, primarily through electron holography and more recently via scanning magnetic microscopy. We are only just scratching the surface of this exciting and complex field, and Nate’s work has enabled and inspired the future research directions of the group, laying the foundations of the NPM project. Now he is heading for bigger and better things as he starts a new post doc position with Suzanne McEnroe in Trondheim, Norway, where I am sure he will continue to do great things in the field of magnetism. We wish him all the best!
