Dr. Sarah K. Vines is an experimental space plasma physicist with a broad range of interests throughout the areas of space science and astrobiology. She is the Co-PI of the Active Magnetosphere and Planetary Electrodynamics Response Experiment (AMPERE), and is also a member of the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission’s Fluxgate Magnetometer (FGM) and Energetic Ion Spectrometer (EIS) instrument teams. Her research focuses primarily on solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions, and in particular has focused on magnetopause structure and dynamics at Earth and the outer planets. Her research interests also include onset and development of global Birkeland currents during times of dynamic magnetospheric activity and hemispherical asymmetries in the field-aligned current systems, properties of electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves and associated plasma conditions for wave growth in the outer magnetosphere, and the effects and signatures of ion composition on magnetospheric processes. Underlying these different topics, her research goals seek to ultimately address the fundamental nature of these processes and the interaction between a magnetized planet and its host star, and just what role a magnetosphere plays in the evolution and habitability of a planetary system. Dr. Vines also has experience with development and analysis of plasma composition instruments, magnetometers, and of multi-point and multi-mission observations through work on MMS, AMPERE, and other missions, such as Cluster, Juno-JADE, and the CeREs cubesat.
