Research Overview

My research interests cover the interaction of the Sun with the atmospheres and magnetospheres of planets. I am currently working with data analysis from spacecraft missions in orbit around Mars, such as Mars Express, Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN), in order to understand the Martian ionosphere and its interaction with the Martian crustal magnetic fields and with the solar wind.
