Professor Andrew Fazakerley has recently been appointed as Head of the Department of Space and Climate Physics, also known as UCL’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL).

Andrew has been at MSSL for more than 20 years. His scientific background is in the area of space plasma physics, but he has also been involved in space mission preparation and operation for much of this time.

“I am looking forward to my new role at MSSL, which is the UK’s largest university space science laboratory. I will be helping our unique team to continue to achieve excellence in scientific research, space instrumentation and teaching, and to explore new opportunities in all those areas. We have current roles in many orbiting missions, including the recently launched UCLsat. Only a few weeks ago, we said farewell to our instrument on the Cassini mission at Saturn."
