Undergraduate Students


My research program provides students with a background in atmospheric physics, including geophysical fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, chemistry and electrodynamics of Earth's upper atmosphere and ionosphere. Topics are related to satellite data analysis, modeling and theoretical studies.


I am seeking highly motivated physics majors. Previous experiences with atmospheric physics and computer programming are not required, but students are expected to have a strong interest in accquiring such skills.

Current Opportunities

I have a number of NASA and NSF sponsored research projects such that I can also provide some summer support. Please contact me if you are interested. The work to be done is mainly the analysis of satellite observations and their interpretation using models. Just talk to me and I will be happy to give you more information.
