About

I am a research scientist in the Space Weather and Atmosphere team at British Antarctic Survey. I investigate fundamental problems in radiation belt physics with relevance to space weather hazards. I develop global plasma wave models, essential for the operation of radiation belt models in the UK, Europe and the US. I manage the extreme events work package in the EU FP7 project SPACESTORM. For this project I am conducting numerical analyses of long-term satellite datasets to determine the 1 in 10, 1 in 50 and 1 in 100 year electron flux levels to help assess the impact of extreme space weather on the satellite fleet.
