We study the interaction between the Sun and the magnetospheres and upper atmospheres of several of the planets in the Solar System (mainly Earth, Saturn and Jupiter).

Our group belongs to a highly active community in the United Kingdom, in which several universities and research laboratories are involved. We also collaborate closely with a number of groups overseas, especially in Scandinavia and the United States.

We are part of the Astronomy Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Southampton.
