Research Interests

  • Geoeffectiveness of Earth directed interplanetary coronal mass ejections (CMEs)  
  • Solar energetic particles (SEPs)
  • Type II radio burst emission and association with CMEs
  • Hard X-ray, radio and EUV emission from solar flares

Current Research

Developing operational space weather forecasting tools to be used by forecasters at NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center. In particular, the development of data products which use real-time solar wind data from the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) spacecraft at L1.

I am also interested in solar energetic particles (SEPs) and how their influence can be felt throughout the heliosphere, particularly their space weather effects here at Earth.
