  • Computer simulations of planetary magnetospheres
  • Coupled interactions of Jupiter's magnetosphere with that of the icy moon Ganymede and the role of heavy ions in governing the dynamics of the system
  • Ion-neutral interactions between Enceladus' cryovolcanic plume and Saturn's magnetosphere
  • Modeling Mars' ionospheric electrodynamics
  • Mars' atmospheric evolution
