Summary

 

Summary

Studying the solar wind in the inner heliosphere with the new Parker Solar Probe and Solar Orbiter missions.

Interested in using multiple spacecraft to measure the 3D shape of large scale structures in the solar wind, particularly the heliospheric current sheet and stream interaction regions.

Also work on understanding switchbacks with Parker Solar Probe, particularly their shape and how this could link to their generation mechanism.

Supported by an Imperial College President's scholarship.
