My primary research interest is the interaction between solar wind and Earth and planetary space environment. My main research focuses include energetic electron transport at Mars and Earth, the Martian ionosphere and magnetosphere. In addition, I am also interested in our terrestrial Moon’s and other unmagnetized bodies’ plasma environments. I am specialized in plasma data analysis and also energetic electron transport modeling. Currently, I am an MAVEN team member and mainly investigate Mars plasma environment and atmosphere loss to space.
