Summary

Member of the Space and Atmospheric Physics  group

Principal Investigator of the Solar Orbiter magnetometer

Science team member, FIELDS and SWEAP on Parker Solar Probe


Are You interested in doing a PhD PROJECT?


I am offering a STFC-funded project in the physics of the inner heliosphere, linked to Parker Solar Probe and Solar Orbiter. See more details at this link.

Note: this project is funded by the UK STFC. Please read sections 27, 28 and 29 of this document carefully to make sure that you are eligible for funding. I cannot take on a student funded by a President's scholarship this year. Sorry if we cannot fund you.

Still interested? Please email me.

I am not offering any UROP placements this summer.


Research interests

  • Waves and turbulence in plasmas
  • Solar wind structures
  • Novel data analysis techniques

Teaching
