Research Overview

I’m interested in the effects of Space Weather on ground-based infrastructure and radio systems. Using extreme value theory, I estimate the potential for ionospheric currents to disrupt electricity supplies and railway signalling. I also work with the Met Office developing a service to airlines and air traffic controllers that forecasts HF radio communications outages during solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and solar proton events.

I’m currently a consultant to Airbus Defence & Space Ltd modelling the ionospheric impacts on the European Space Agency’s Biomass radar satellite which will launch in 2021.
