DR. MIHO JANVIER
SOLAR / SPACE PHYSICIST

 

BIOGRAPHY

Miho Janvier is a space physicist at the Institut d’Astrophysique Spatiale, France. Her work focuses on the understanding of when solar flares occur, how solar storms travel in space and how they impact planetary environments in the solar system.  In a nutshell, she works towards a better prediction of "space weather," with a goal of better understanding the influence of the Sun's activity on human societies. She uses data from space missions from NASA, ESA and JAXA as well as developing 3D computer models of solar eruptions.

Miho is also involved as the deputy project scientist on the instrument SPICE as well as a scientific co-Investigator on the instrument EUI on board Solar Orbiter, the next European Space Agency mission to explore the Sun and its close neighbourhood.


Her passion for astrophysics and science communication has led her to develop several science communication projects: she partnered with the movie production company TreeHouse Digital Ltd to develop a 360 degrees experience of a solar storm using science data and VFX, and is currently developing a project to showcase the Solar Orbiter mission in Virtual Reality. 

In 2016 Miho was named WIRED UK Innovation fellow, you can watch her talk here. In 2017 Miho was selected to be a TED Fellow, you can see her talk here.
