I am a senior scientist in the Space Physics Plasma Group.

My main research interest concerns the understanding of the coupled solar wind - magnetosphere - ionosphere system.   I conduct studies based on the analysis and interpretation of large datasets from a wide variety of sources, counting ground-based ionospheric measurements, low-altitude polar orbiting magnetic satellite observations, plasma and field measurements from a large number of satellites in the solar wind and magnetosphere, and results from global magneto-hydro-dynamic simulations of the system. Currently I am involved in investigations utilizing data from the AMPERE and SWARM satellite missions as well as both current and historic ground-based magnetometer observations. 

Another are of interest is space weather research.  I am part of the management team for ESA's Expert Service Center for Geomagnetic Conditions.
