Curriculum Vitae:

Jamie Jasinski

Jamie Jasinski is a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow at JPL carrying out research on the solar wind interaction with planetary magnetospheres. Jamie obtained his PhD at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory at UCL, where he reported on the first observations of the magnetospheric cusp at Saturn. He is part of the Cassini Plasma Spectrometer team. Jamie completed a 2-year postdoc at the University of Michigan analysing data from the MESSENGER mission to Mercury, as well continuing Cassini spacecraft research. He has also worked on topics such as auroral dynamics at giant planets, and transiting exoplanets.
