Biographical sketch:

Sophie supports research, communication, and public engagement activities across the Astronomy & Astrophysics Section.

Her research background prior to this role focused on better understanding the solar source of space weather events in order to improve predictions of their impact on Earth. After completing a PhD in solar physics at Trinity College Dublin, she worked at the Met Office, the UK’s national meteorological service. She then returned to Trinity to work as a Research Fellow before joining DIAS. Collaborating with scientists, forecasters, policy makers, and end users, she transitioned basic science to operational space weather forecasting products. Sophie has experience in a range of space weather disciplines, from solar flare forecasting, to solar wind propagation, and thermospheric modelling.
