My research mainly focuses on the data analysis from the Cassini magnetometer. In particular, the magnetic signatures associated large-scale current systems within Saturn's magnetosphere, with a special interest in those related to Saturn's aurora and periodicities.

I am involved in the Cassini end of mission magnetic field science, where we hope to learn more about the interior and structure of Saturn, as well as mapping its magnetic field.
