Research Overview

My research is focused in the study of magnetised plasmas in a variety of solar system and astrophysical contexts. This research contributes to our understanding of solar system bodies, how they interact with their surroundings, and the basic plasma physics of these interactions. Most of my work focuses on the giant planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune but I have also studied Venus. To carry out this research I use empirical modelling, in situ data analysis from spacecraft such as Cassini at Saturn, statistical studies, and theory/simulations.
