My research area is Solar and Heliospheric Physics. In particular, I am
interested in the solar corona, the solar wind, and transient phenomena
within the heliosphere.

Our group here at UCSD has developed a facility for processing archival
data from the HELIOS spacecraft Zodiacal Light Photometers. Using this
and interplanetary scintillation (IPS) data allows us to reconstruct solar
wind structures in 3 dimensions, with an eye toward space weather forecasting.

Currently, I am co-investigator on the Solar Mass Ejection Imager, (SMEI),
now under construction. SMEI will fly on an Earth-orbiting spacecraft being
developed for the U.S.Air Force Coriolis Mission by UC San Diego and the
University of Birmingham,in Birmingham,England. I am also involved with the
SOHO LASCO coronograph instrumentation.
