I am a researcher in the Space Plasma Physics Group. My current main research focus is the solar wind-geospace coupling. In specific, I am interested in the influence of the dawn-dusk component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF By) on processes and phenomena occurring in the nightside magnetosphere, in the magnetotail. In this research, I analyse and investigate satellite data measured by the ESA’s and NASA’s magnetospheric space missions such as Cluster, THEMIS, ARTEMIS and MMS.
In addition, I have research interests in auroral physics, specifically current systems associated with auroral arcs. In these investigations, I study ground-based and ionospheric measurements from the EISCAT incoherent scatter radars, magnetometers and auroral all-sky cameras, and low-orbiting satellites such as CHAMP (GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences) and Swarm (ESA).
