Combines data analysis and theory in study of space plasmas of the magnetospheres of the outer planets. Involved in NASA missions to planetary objects including Voyager, Galileo, Deep Space 1, New Horizons and Juno.
Studies space plasmas at Earth, Mars and Jupiter, spanning theory to flight hardware. Involved in NASA missions: FAST, THEMIS, STEREO, Juno, MAVEN, MMS and Solar Probe Plus.
Does observational studies and theoretical modeling of Io's escaping atmosphere and the Io plasma torus. Atmospheric escape from Mars, Mercury, the Moon and other planetary satellites.
Studies plasma interactions with unmagnetized planets.
Does large scale data analysis of thermal plasma data from a variety of space missions and instruments in the magnetospheres of Jupiter and Saturn in order to better understand the global dynamics of outer planetary magnetospheres.
Works on the MASCS instrument, which is studying Mercury's tenuous atmosphere from the Messenger spacecraft. Also works on modeling neutrals in a variety of magnetospheric environments, especially H2O orbiting Saturn. Has also worked on Jupiter's moon Europa, the moon and exoplanets.
Researches the interaction of magnetospheric plasma with the atmosphere of Io and the extensive consequences of this interaction.
Models the interaction of the solar wind with Jupiter's magnetosphere via reconnection and viscous processes.
Models the evolution of material emitted from Enceladus geysers as it interacts with a co-existing population of plasma to identify the role of the Enceladus geysers and hot electrons within Saturn's inner magnetosphere.
