  • Research Associate
  • Dept of Space & Climate Physics
  • Faculty of Maths & Physical Sciences
I completed my PhD between 2014 and 2018 in the Space Environment Physics group at the University of Southampton, studying dynamic magnetospheric processes at Mercury and Saturn.

In 2018 I moved to the Space Plasma Physics group at MSSL, where I am currently a research associate.

Research Summary
My current work focuses on understanding the causes of structure and sudden brightening in the Earth's aurora, as well as how we can understand and forecast the ground effects of Space Weather.  I am particularly interested in the use of advanced modelling solutions (e.g. Machine Learning) to gain a deeper physical understanding of large systems, and forecast complex phenomena.
