- Feb 2017: Kim Tucker-Hood, my PhD student co-supervised with Prof. Chris Scott, has passed her viva, subject to minor thesis corrections. Huge congratulations to Kim!
- Jan 2017: My article on reconstructing the solar wind over the last four centuries has been published. There's a nice write up on IFL.
- Jun 2016: The Guardian have a nice summary of my recent work on thunder day observations.
- Mar 2016: I'm now an Associate Editor for Solar Physics, specialising in heliospheric science.
- Mar 2016: My former PhD student, Simon Thomas, has won the Department of Meteorology's Ian James thesis prize. Read it here.
- Jan 2016: The American Geophysical Union have a EOS spotlight article on my recent solar wind-lightning research
- Mar 2015: Simon Thomas successfully defended his PhD thesis, "On the heliospheric modulation of galactic cosmic rays."
- Nov 2014: My recent article on Lightning and the solar magnetic field has picked up a lot of media attention. e.g., BBC, Mail, Independent, Guardian, Scientific American. There is a particularly informative write up at Environmental Research Web
- The heliospheric magnetic field
- The source of the slow solar wind
- Empirical and numerical space-weather forecasting
- Reconstructions of long-term solar variability More information can be found here. A list of publications is available here.
- Space Weather Impact on Ground-based Systems (NERC funded)
- Driving Space Weather forecasts with real data (NERC funded): Can determining background solar wind conditions by using data from the NASA STEREO spacecraft improve the accuracy of space weather forecast models?
- The heliosphere and space weather under space-climate change (STFC funded)
- Geomagnetic, sunspot and cosmogenic nuclide reconstructions of the solar magnetic field (Leverhulme funded)
