My research involves studying the effects of solar storms on different planets and moons within the solar system. I am particularly interested in solar wind interactions with weakly magnetized objects such as the Moon and Mars and how that interaction has evolved over millennia. I accomplish my work through a synthesis of complex numerical models and satellite observations.
