I am mainly interested in interior–atmosphere interactions on giant planets, such as; modelling the interplay between their magnetic fields and fluid flows, the effects of zonal wind dynamics on their interior structure and atmospheric composition, and the electrical conductivities of volatile–ice mixtures within these planets.
I am also invested in exploring both planetary and non-planetary science potential in preparation for the prospective Uranus Orbiter mission. I am investigating the vertical temperature variations and their connection to zonal winds for the entry probe. Additionally, I am co-leading an international team to explore the possibility for potentially detecting gravitational waves from supermassive black hole binary mergers, and constraining the local dark matter content during the cruise phase of the spacecraft.
