I am interested in the interaction of the solar wind with planetary magnetospheres, and the resulting effect on magnetospheric structure and dynamics. To understand the physical processes of this interaction I analyse data, specifically particle and magnetic field measurements, sent back to Earth from spacecraft that orbit other planets.
