Martin Volwerk, born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on 3 August 1963.
I have studied (plasma)astrophysics at Utrecht University and got my master's degree in 1989 on the topic: Magnetic flaring near black holes. I then continued at Utrecht University and obtained my PhD in Plasmaastrophysics with a thesis on Strong Double Layers in Astrophysical Plasmas on 13 December 1993.
My research interests at the moment are:
- The magnetic interaction of the Jovian magnetosphere with the Galilean satellites;
- The Earth's magnetotail, mainly concentrating on ULF waves, using data from Cluster, Double Star;
- The magnetic environment around Venus, using data from Venus Express.
My general interests are:
- J.R.R. Tolkien
- SciFi and Fantasy in General
That will have to do for now.
