Homayon Aryan joined the Space Systems Laboratory in 2011 to study towards a PhD in application system approach to the modeling and forecasting of fluxes of high energy electrons in the terrestrial radiation belts. Before joining the group he completed a master degree in Aerospace Engineering with Private Pilot Instructions (distinction) at The University of Sheffield (2007 - 2011) and also obtained a Private Pilots License. As part of his final year dissertation he designed, built and tested a Martian unmanned aerial vehicle prototype capable of flying within the thin Martian atmosphere.

Current Research

  • Statistical study of electromagnetic waves in the Earth’s inner magnetosphere using the Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Field Fluctuations (STAFF) measurements from the Cluster and Double Star missions.
  • Statistical study of chorus emission at Saturn using data from Cassini-Huygens.
  • Acceleration, transport and loss processes of relativistic electrons in the Earth’s radiation belts.
  • Flux of high energy electrons within the Van Allen radiation belts.
  • Interplanetary collisionless shocks associated with coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and co-rotating interactive regions (CIRs) using data from Venus Express (VEX), Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) and Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO).
