Associate Research Professor
Examples of SPA research at Rice:
Magnetic field lines and surfaces of constant plasma pressure in Earth's magnetosphere, calculated using the RCM-Friction code (a version of the Rice Convection Model which has been merged with a magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium code).
A composite image showing a fast coronal mass ejection (from SOHO/LASCO) and a He 304 image (from SOHO/EIT). Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) are the most energetic phenomena in the solar system and a major source of Space Weather.
