Short bio: The research interests of Dr. Claudia Borries are electrodynamic coupling processes in the thermosphere-ionosphere system, including storm conditions and coupling processes with the lower atmosphere. Since 2005 she has been working at the German Aerospace Center, DLR, in Neustrelitz. At that time, she started her PhD studying the signatures of planetary waves in the ionosphere. In 2010 she received the PhD degree from the Free University of Berlin. Subsequently, her research focus was on the effects of ionospheric storms in mid-latitudes. In 2015, she received a grant to build-up a young academics group at DLR. In parallel, she was acting in the ESA Space Weather Network as coordinator of the Ionosphere Expert Service Centre (2015-2021). Since 2019, she is head of department in the newly founded DLR Institute for Solar-Terrestrial Physics. MAGE, the new-generation “whole geospace model” targeted by CGS, makes the next step in improving geospace modeling capabilities and enables investigation of many coupling processes that Dr. Borries is interested in. She follows MAGE development closely and is eager to collaborate on model-data comparisons.
