Michael Zellinger has recently finished his Master at the University of Graz, where he worked on numerical simulations of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability around Venus, which has been discussed as a possible major loss process for particles of the Venusian ionosphere.
He is now PhD student at the University of Graz and Research Assistant at the Space Research Institute in Graz, where he works on magnetohyrdodynamic simulations of plasmaphysical instabilities. Currently, he investigates the flapping motion of the Earth’s magnetotail.
