Gabby Provan: BSc (Leicester), PhD (Leicester)

Gabby was born in Stavanger, Norway, and grew up in Norway and London. She did a degree in physics with astrophysics at the University of Leicester. This was followed by a PhD looking at Earth’s space weather and how the weather in space depends on the interaction between the Earth’s and the Sun’s magnetic fields. She is currently employed as a researcher studying magnetic fields and planetary auroras around the gas giants, in particular looking at the data from the Cassini and the Juno spacecraft.

Outside of work she enjoys enthusing about her science to a wide audience, and has both a mobile planetarium and a planeterrella to play with.
