Expert in comparative magnetospheric physics with an emphasis on the numerical simulation of space plasmas using hybrid and multi-fluid techniques.

More on research
Delamere has studied the solar wind interaction with the giant magnetospheres of Jupiter and Saturn, comets, Pluto, and the plasma interaction at Io. In addition, he has 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. Ultimately, the goal of this multi-pronged, comparative approach is to better understand the terrestrial magnetosphere.
