My field of research is the interior structure and dynamics of planets, including Earth.

  • Convection in the silicate mantle of planets
  • Generation of planetary magnetic fields by a dynamo process
  • Flow in the giant gas planets
  • Internal structure from geodetic and seismological observations

I use numerical simulations to study dynamical processes in the planets.
