Space plasma physics
Space plasma physics research is focused on:
- generation and dynamics of ULF and ELF electromagnetic emissions in space
- formation and dynamics of thin plasma current sheets and boundary layers in space
- collisionless wave-particle acceleration processes and plasma heating
- auroral and polar phenomena
Interests also include hardware efforts that focus on ground- and space-based instrumentation related to these topics as well as the development of a student-built satellite.
