I am an assistant professor at the Physics & Applied Physics department at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Prior to that I was an Astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
My research involves interdisciplinary studies covering wide range of topics from Solar & Space Physics and Planetary Science to Astrophysics and Exoplanets. My research approach is based on the assumption that plasma physics processes are universal, and that we should use the detailed information we have from our own solar system to study astrophysical problems that are less constrained.
