About me

I use NASA's Parker Solar Probe and ESA's Solar Orbiter data to study high-frequency plasma waves measured close to the Sun and their connection to the solar wind's electron population dynamics. The goal is to characterize the kinetic instabilities behind the emission of these waves and understand how the energy exchange between electrons and high-frequency plasma oscillations, measured at small heliocentric distances, shapes the early evolution of the solar wind at small scales.
