Dissertation Title: Detailed Responses in the Juno JADE-E Sensor and Electron Dynamics in Saturn’s Magnetosphere
Dissertation Advisor: Frederic Allegrini
Graduation Date: Summer 2014
Post-Doctoral Fellowship: Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
Current Position: Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
Research Areas: The physics of magnetospheric and auroral plasma phenomena in the magnetospheres of the outer solar system. He specializes in the analysis and interpretations of spacecraft data from missions such as Juno, Cassini and Galileo and many more. One of his recent and more notable discoveries is the presence of mega-volt electric potentials over Jupiter’s polar cap region – a phenomena that accelerates ions to very high-energies into Jupiter’s upper atmosphere.
