Areas of Research
Data and theory-based studies of the ionosphere and near-earth space, with a focus on electrodynamics and auroral physics.
Working with this supervisor
I'm looking for students seeking a deep understanding of electrodynamics and plasma physics through application to data and theory-based studies of the ionosphere and its coupling to the upper atmosphere and magnetosphere. Data-based projects incorporate measurements from low-energy particle detectors on the Swarm and ePOP satellites currently in orbit. We currently have openings for MSc students to participate in the NSERC CREATE International Space Mission training program which combines thesis-based research with project-based mission management training in collaboration with partner universities in Canada and Norway. Previous graduates have gone on to jobs in industry, academia, and university and government-based research.
