I am a Research Associate at the University of Colorado, Boulder and affiliated with the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center. I am also part-time affiliated with the Dutch National Center for Mathematics and Computer Science.
I am the founder of the Machine Learning for Space Weather group at CWI. I am the team leader of the VIDI grant 'Real-time forecasting of killer electrons on satellite orbits' and of the CWI-INRIA project 'Data-enhanced simulations for Space Weather predictions', and co-PI of several other machine learning related projects.

My main interests cover Space Plasma Physics and Machine Learning.

Applied Mathematics:

  • Machine Learning and Data Assimilation for Geophysical Applications
  • Uncertainty Quantification
  • Data-drive applications in Computational Physics
  • Numerical techniques for Kinetic Plasma Physics


  • Space Weather
  • Solar Wind turbulence
  • Radiation Belt & Magnetospheric Physics
