My research area is Solar and Heliospheric Physics. In particular, I am|
interested in the solar corona, the solar wind, and transient phenomena
within the heliosphere.
Our group here at UCSD has developed a facility for processing archival
data from the HELIOS spacecraft Zodiacal Light Photometers. Using this
and interplanetary scintillation (IPS) data allows us to reconstruct solar
wind structures in 3 dimensions, with an eye toward space weather forecasting.
Currently, I am co-investigator on the
Solar Mass Ejection Imager, (SMEI),
now under construction. SMEI will fly on an Earth-orbiting spacecraft being
developed for the U.S.Air Force Coriolis Mission by
UC San Diego and the
I am also involved with the
