Post Doctoral Research Associate in Space Science, Nottingham Trent University


I graduated from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, in 2002 with a BSc in physics with planetary and space physics. I then went on to complete a master's degree in space science, at University College London. Finally I graduated with a PhD from Aberystwyth University (name changed between undergrad and PhD). I studied large-scale structure in the solar wind as my thesis topic.

Since then I have held research positions in the fields of solar physics, space science, and geomagnetism. Currently I study the interaction between the ionosphere and the neutral atmosphere.
