Research Interests

Dr. Martin Reiss is a research scientist at the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Graz, Austria. 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 ambient solar wind and interplanetary coronal mass ejections in our solar system. His scientific expertise includes the comparison and optimization of solar wind model solutions with observations from space missions such as Solar Orbiter 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 and awareness.
