We have learnt, with great regret, of the untimely death of Nigel Wade after a short illness.

Nigel worked in the Radio and Space Plasma Physics (RSPP) group at Leicester for over 30 years and was one of the unsung heroes of the Department providing invaluable support for the group’s research programme during that time.  His role in the RSPP group was first as a programmer working on EISCAT data analysis, then as the RSPP group’s computer systems manager, and more recently he had been heavily involved in the code development for the MIXS instrument on Bepi-Colombo.

During his time at Leicester, Nigel provided computing support to well over a hundred academic staff, postdoctoral staff and postgraduate students.  He will be missed by everyone in RSPP.
