Sarah K. Vines, Ph.D.
Thesis Title: Ion-scale characteristics and dynamics of dayside magnetopause reconnection exhausts: Effects of interplanetary magnetic field orientation
Thesis Advisor: Stephen Fuselier
Current Position and Research Areas: Sarah is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. She is continuing her graduate work on magnetic reconnection with the NASA MMS mission, working with the MAG team and the Energetic Ion Spectrometer. She is also working on the NSF AMPERE constellation studying the coupling of the solar wind to magnetospheric processes through observations of Birkeland currents.
