Our group conducts research in experimental space physics and space technology. The underlying goal of the group is to understand the space environment around Earth and within our solar system where we live, explore, and operate technology.

Research in our group is conducted primarily through space-based sensors, some on large NASA and ESA missions, and some on small satellites and sounding rockets developed in-house at BU or with our collaborators. Experimentally, our group specializes in development of soft X-ray and UV imagers as well as other compact and low resource devices. We also employ novel analysis and machine learning techniques to explore and model large datasets from the space environment.
