The overarching goal of my research is to understand the interior structure, dynamics, and evolution of planetary bodies. My research recognizes and emphasizes that understanding planetary magnetic fields is essential for understanding the host planets.  My research experience encompasses space magnetometer data analysis, analytical and numerical magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) modeling of planetary dynamos, and theoretical calculation of planetary gravity fields. I am a Cassini Participating Scientist, a member of the Cassini magnetometer (MAG) team, a member of the Juno Interior Working Group, and a Co-Investigator of the JUICE MAG team. Currently I am deriving the interior structures and dynamics of Saturn and Jupiter employing magnetic fields measurements from the Cassini Grand Finale and Juno.
