New co-authorship on waves at magnetotail reconnection sites!

A paper I'm co-author on was recently accepted to GRL! It is a really interesting study looking into how electron crescent distributions can produce upper hybrid waves at the magnetotail reconnection sites. These waves can later have effects back on local plasma populations, as well as acting as a dissipation mechanism at the reconnection sites. It is yet another in a list of really great discoveries by the NASA Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission!

The paper can be found here!

A paper entitled, "3He-rich solar energetic particle events with no measurable 4He intensity increases" that I am co-author on has been accepted! It is a paper that is looking into some puzzling event

I got a paper highlighted!

This is not exactly new news, but it is new news for my blog. Last year I published a paper on internal versus external sources of plasma at Saturn, with the catchy title of "Internal Versus External
