Research Activities

Ring current (source, dynamics, and loss during storms)

Plasmasphere (refilling and global dynamics)

Superthermal electrons (photoelectrons at Earth and other planets)

Relativistic electrons (natural radiation belts and beam-injected artificial ones)

Magnetosphere-solar wind interactions (solar wind control of geospace)

Magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions (outflow, precipitation, and electrodynamic coupling)

Planetary-solar wind interactions (electron transport, pick-up ions, and atmospheric escape)

Other topics of interest to me (plasma waves, space tethers, and things that don't fit elsewhere)
