Research Interests: 
Dr. Larson is interested in developing, building and testing of instrumentation to study particles in the solar wind and planetary environments. Our team at Berkeley built the 3 Electrostatic analyzers that will measure the full 3D distribution functions of Ions and Electrons for the SWEAP investigation on Parker Solar Probe. (To be launched August 2018) We are looking for postdoctoral candidates to analyze data for this mission to understand the dynamics of the heating and acceleration of the solar wind.
Candidate's Preferred Background: 
Solar Wind Plasma Physics, Planetary interactions with the solar wind, instrumentation
