Current Research:
Prof. Winglee has extensive experience in space plasma physics and engineering, particularlyin relation to the space environments around the planets and advanced space propulsionsystems. Significant areas of research include the generation of auroral kilometricradiation, heating of ionospheric ions in the auroral zone, the active injection of beams fromspacecraft, reconnection in the magnetotail and magnetopause, ionospheric ion outflows, andplanetary magnetospheres, and the development of electrodeless plasma systems for in-spacepropulsion.

He also continues to work with developing opportunities for students in higher education inScience, Technology, Engineering and Math through his activities associated with theWashington NASA Space Grant Consortium.
