Research Summary

Space plasmas, magnetospheric and auroral physics. Particular interests in:

  1. the acceleration of auroral particles by quasi-static and wave electric fields; 
  2. the dynamics, energy transport and fast magnetic flux transport within the magnetotail;
  3. the energy coupling between the magnetosphere and ionosphere;
  4. the interpretation and limitations of multi-spacecraft and single-spacecraft analysis techniques.
 I primarily study these phenomena using data from ESA's Cluster spacecraft, supplemented by data from ground-based observatories and other magnetospheric observatories.
