Research overview

Magnetospheric and auroral dynamics in the solar system.  Diagnosing the transfer of energy from the Sun to planetary environments.  Use of Cassini spacecraft in situ and remote sensing data at Saturn.  Interpretation and comparison of auroral emissions at ultraviolet, infrared and radio wavelengths from the outer planets.

PhD supervision

Dynamics of Jupiter’s magnetosphere: We are exploring giant planet environments with the Juno mission at Jupiter and concurrent Hisaki and Hubble Space Telescope images of Jupiter’s UV aurora. The combination of these measurements allow us to probe how the vast magnetosphere responds to changes in the external (e.g. solar wind) and internal (e.g. the volcanic moon Io) conditions. This project will exploit the available data to investigate the mechanisms and timescales of Jupiter’s magnetospheric dynamics.
