I am a NSF Postdoctoral Fellow researching at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. I received my PhD from Boston University in 2011 and have been at Goddard since then. My research interests focus on the interaction between the solar wind and the magnetosphere and ionosphere. In particular I use spacecraft measurements to study plasma physics occurring near the Earth's magnetopause, cusps, and bow shock. Recently I have been involved in the prototyping and modeling of a wide field-of-view soft X-ray imager to provide a global picture of the solar wind-magnetospheric interaction.
