Introduction
I'm a graduate student working on my PhD in Space Physics. I study magnetic interactions between Jupiter and its moons. Since 2016 I have served as a member of the board of directors for Engage, a course in science communication for graduate students, taught and run by graduate students. I have 10 years of experience teaching and tutoring in physics, and I'm an expert in Socratic dialogue. As part of the Science Communication Fellows program, I volunteer my time at the Pacific Science Center.

Article
Magnetic investigations of icy moons have provided some of the most compelling evidence available confirming the presence of subsurface, liquid water oceans. In the exploration of ocean moons, especially Europa, there is a need for mathematical models capable of predicting the magnetic fields induced under a variety of conditions, including in the...
Article
Full-text available
The Galileo mission to Jupiter discovered magnetic signatures associated with hidden subsurface oceans at the moons Europa and Callisto using the phenomenon of magnetic induction. These induced magnetic fields originate from electrically conductive layers within the moons and are driven by Jupiter's strong time‐varying magnetic field. The ice giant...

Article
Full-text available
Prior analyses of oceanic magnetic induction within Jupiter's large icy moons have assumed uniform electrical conductivity. However, the phase and amplitude responses of the induced fields will be influenced by the natural depth‐dependence of the electrical conductivity. Here, we examine the amplitudes and phase delays for magnetic diffusion in mod...

The five largest planets all have strong intrinsic magnetic fields that interact with their satellites, many of which contain electrically conducting materials on global scales. Conducting bodies exposed to time-varying magnetic fields induce secondary magnetic fields from movement of eddy currents. In the case of spherically symmetric conducting b...

We report the development of a laboratory-based Rowland-circle monochromator that incorporates a low power x-ray (bremsstrahlung) tube source, a spherically bent crystal analyzer, and an energy-resolving solid-state detector. This relatively inexpensive, introductory level instrument achieves 1-eV energy resolution for photon energies of ∼5 keV to...
