Science projects

  • Rosetta. ESA's comet hunter, launched in 2004, explored comet Churyomov-Gerasimenko in 2014-2016.
  • Cluster. Much of what I do is related to our Electric Fields and Waves instrument (EFW) on ESA's four Cluster satellites.
    • My main scientific interests on Cluster have been cold plasma and electric field measurements.
    • Every week, I plan the operations of the EFW instrument on Cluster.
    • We developed a Langmuir probe system for each of ESAs three Swarm spacecraft, launched in 2013.
    • With Stephan Buchert, Reine Gill and others, I have worked on instrument design, performance and data analysis issues.
  • MMS.
  • Freja, Viking and Astrid-2. The data from our previous instruments are still very useful.
    • Investigations of lower hybrid cavities.
