Interests: Space plasma physics, dusty plasmas, and atmospheric electrodynamics
I am primarily interested in modification of the ionosphere by both natural and anthropomorphic sources, and the impact ionospheric modification can have on Earth systems and humanity. Currently I am analyzing World Wide Lightning Location Network data to investigate changes radio propagation in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide induced by solar storms.
