Dr. Martin Reiss


Dr. Martin Reiss is a scientist at NASA's Community Coordinated Modeling Center. His research interests are in solar and heliospheric physics, specifically the Sun's global coronal magnetic fields, the solar origins of the ambient solar wind flow, and the large-scale modeling of the solar wind and interplanetary coronal mass ejections in our solar system. His expertise includes the comparison and optimization of solar wind model solutions with observations from space missions such as the Solar Dynamics Observatory and Parker Solar Probe. Dr. Reiss is particularly passionate about the application of data science methods such as machine learning for the benefit of space weather research.
