My research interests cover two areas in space physics, with both theoretical and observational aspects.The first area, space plasma physics, concerns the studies of microscopic phenomena such as non linear waves, wave particle interactions and turbulence in plasmas. The second area concerns the study of the ionosphere and magnetosphere of the giant planet systems, their interactions and the connection to the aurora, and I am a member of the Planetary and Plasma Physics group at University College London.
My research involves extensive use of high performance computing and the development of advanced numerical codes for simulation purposes.
I have also been working extensively with incoherent scatter radar technique (EISCAT in Northern Scandinavia) both theoretically and experimentally and I am now involved in EISCAT 3D.
