Specializations and research interests:

Space weather and space climate, the coupled interaction of the solar wind with planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres. Global magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation of Saturn’s magnetosphere and the magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling in Earth’s paleomagnetosphere. Modeling of solar wind propagation from 1 AU to the outer planets and Pluto and reverse solar wind propagation to Mercury. CLUSTER and THEMIS multi-scale analysis of reconnection and dipolarization events in the Earth’s magnetotail, including particle acceleration at plasma jet fronts. Global multi-ion multi-fluid MHD simulations of the heliosphere and its interaction with the interstellar medium to support the Voyager and IBEX missions. Dispersive shock waves and magnetosonic turbulence in multi-ion plasma and its application at the termination shock, in the heliosheath, and in planetary magnetosheaths.
