Research Overview

Auroral emissions and magnetospheric structure. Investigating outer aurorae at Saturn - their dynamics and occurrence with respect to injection signatures in ultraviolet aurorae and ENA. Additionally, I am investigating PPO signatures in southern hemisphere using data gathered during Cassini 'Grand Finale' orbits.

Auroral research involved Cassini UVIS and MMI/INCA instrument usage, with potential for comparison to limited CAPS/ELS electron measurements. PPO investigation uses MAG instrument.
