I am Professor of Space Physics and Deputy Head of Department for Infrastructure and Health & Safety in the Department of Physics, also known as the Blackett laboratory. In the Department I am a member of the space and atmospheric physics research group. I am also the director of Space Lab, the College Network of Excellence connecting all of Imperial's space expertise, and co-lead of the Imperial X Space research theme. 

I have previously worked at the University of California, Berkeley, and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt MD where I held a National Research Council Resident Research Associateship. From 2010-2014 I held an STFC Advanced Fellowship at Imperial. In 2012 I was awarded the COSPAR Zeldovich Medal (Commission D).
