Research Interests: 
Professor Forbes' research interests include the upper atmosphere environments of Earth, Mars, and other planets; coupling of these environments to lower altitudes and to solar variability; geomagnetic storm effects on satellite drag variability; the vertical propagation of tides and planetary waves in planetary atmospheres, and their electrodynamic and chemical effects; utilization of accelerometer, satellite drag, and satellite remote sensing data to elucidate atmospheric variability, and to test, validate and develop upper atmosphere models.
Candidate's Preferred Background: 
Experience with data analysis tools (regression, spectral analysis) and working with satellite data. Some background in one or more of the following: atmospheric dynamics, large-scale waves propagation throughout the atmosphere, ion-neutral coupling, chemical-dynamical coupling.
