My group’s research involves understanding planetary interior processes and evolution. Presently, we focus on studying planetary magnetic field generation. We use high performance computing to study the dynamo process (where convection in electrically conducting fluid regions inside planets generate self-sustaining magnetic fields). Investigating planetary magnetic fields can give us important information about the thermal history of a planet, its interior structure, and the fluid motions occurring in the core.
