Research Overview

I'm studying for a PhD in Remote Sensing the Dynamics of Outer Planet Magnetospheres Using Auroral Observations under the supervision of Dr. Sarah Badman. I'm particularly interested in using the aurora for analysis of radial plasma transport dynamics in the Jovian magnetosphere.
