He researches internal structure and evolution of both major and terrestrial planets, application of fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics [dynamicsof electrically conducting fluids] to planetary interiors, and the origin of the solar system. GeoSpace recently caught up with him to discuss his early career, his thoughts on the best way to send a probe to the Earth’s core, and his involvement with the upcoming Juno mission to Jupiter, among other topics.
