Research Interests


I am interested in ionospheric and lower atmospheric response to Geospace events. Traditionally, magnetospheric–ionospheric and lower atmospheric science communities have been somewhat detached, showing different interests in studies of Geospace events. This sort of disconnection is, of course, hollow because the neutral atmosphere and magnetosphere are not separate domains.
