Research Interests: 
Dynamics of Earth's mesosphere-thermosphere-ionosphere system; the forcing and vertical propagation of tides, planetary waves, and gravity waves including their effects on chemistry and electrodynamics; geospace environment coupling to the atmosphere below and to solar activity; comparative aeronomy; long-term trends in the upper atmosphere; utilization of satellite and ground-based remote sensing data to resolve variability and vertical coupling processes in the atmosphere; the validation of middle and upper atmosphere models; specializes in satellite data analysis and physics-based empirical modeling of global scale waves in the stratosphere, mesosphere and thermosphere.
Candidate's Preferred Background: 
One or more of the following: satellite data analysis experience, mesosphere-thermosphere-ionosphere physics, numerical modeling
