Research Interests

  • Since January 2015, SSEL's twin FIREBIRD CubeSats have been observing particle precipitation in Low Earth Orbit.My work is to characterize this precipitation, that mostly originates from the Van Allen Radiation Belts. This precipitation is believed to be caused by wave-particle interactions in the belts.
