Magnetospheres in the Outer Solar System

Magnetospheres in the Outer Solar System

We study the plasma environments of small bodies in the outer solar system, such as the moons of Jupiter and Saturn or the dwarf planet Pluto. We apply the following methods:

We have open positions for PhD students who are interested in the physics of magnetospheres in the outer solar system and moon-plasma interactions. Please contact us for more information!
