Study of micro and macro-physical processes in space plasmas:

  • Turbulence properties in the solar wind and the planetary magnetosheaths (Mercury, Earth, Jupiter, Saturn).
  • Solar wind acceleration and heating processes.
  • Nature of the plasma waves in different plasma environments and conditions.
  • Electrodynamic interaction between icy moons and gas giants.
  • Dusty plasmas

Study of the Outer planet’s upper atmospheres :

  • Properties of the ionosphere of Saturn (plasma density, temperature,...)
  • Electrodyanmic interaction between the ionosphere of Saturn and its main rings.
  • Wave characteristics
  • Moon - Magnetosphere interaction
