Scientific Interests:

My scientific interests refer to all problems in SPACE PLASMA PHYSICS.
This refers especially to the Physics of the Earth's Magnetosphere

.

                                           

                                              (NASA-GSFC ISTP picture archives)


The interaction between the Earth's magnetosphere and the solar wind has many beautiful....

but also severe consequences


Besides, I am interested in the physics of the solar system and in plasma astrophysics.

For these purposes I use the following tools:

Numerical modeling and simulation
(MHD, multi-fluid / plasma-neutral gas, dust-plasma-neutral gas)
Kinetic theory of space plasmas.
