Welcome to my personal homepage! I am an Associate Professor in Space Plasma Physics at UCL’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL) and the Head of Group of the MSSL Space Plasma Physics group. I study the behaviour of plasmas across our solar system. These plasmas include the solar wind, the solar corona, plasmas around planets in the solar system, and the plasma in Earth’s geospace environment. My work is located at the intersection between the analysis of spacecraft data, theoretical plasma physics, numerical simulations, and the development of new space missions and instruments.

My research in heliophysics is important for the comprehension of solar-terrestrial relations and space weather, which pose a serious threat to humans and to our technology both in space and on the ground. I am working towards a physics-based understanding of space plasmas that enables successful and accurate predictions of this hazard. Space weather impacts spacecraft operations, human aviation and spaceflight, power grids, communication and navigation systems, the finance sector, and ground transportation.

In addition, I use space plasmas in the solar system as a natural laboratory to study fundamental processes that occur in astrophysical plasmas across the Universe such as accretion discs around black holes, the interstellar medium, and the medium between galaxies. This research is of great importance for our understanding of astrophysical systems, since more than 99% of the baryonic matter in the Universe is in the plasma state.
