Research Interests

The near-Earth space environment or geospace is a complex physical system, connecting the Sun, interplanetary space, and the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Geospace dynamics affect technological infrastructure such as Earth-orbiting spacecraft and electrical power grids at high latitudes. We study these dynamics using satellite measurements and ground-based observations. We are particularly interested in constellation missions consisting of several satellites; they operate as a multi-point array in space, allowing us to investigate changes in geospace structures in both space and time.
