I help coordinate the Alaska Summer Research Academy. I also offer post award support to scientists with the CNSM Division of Research.
Expertise: Magnetospheres, Planets, Modeling
My research focuses on comparative magnetospheric physics with an emphasis on the numerical simulation of space plasmas using hybrid (kinetic ion, fluid electron) and multi-fluid techniques. I have studied the solar wind interaction with the giant magnetospheres of Jupiter and Saturn, comets, Pluto, and the plasma interaction at Io. In addition, I have developed models to study the flow of mass and energy through the magnetospheres of Jupiter and Saturn to study the internally-driven dynamics of these systems.more
