Research Interests: Space Physics and Space Weather

Plasma instabilities in the high-latitude ionosphere.
Plasma instabilities can trigger irregularities in the plasma parameters that can be measured with various instruments such as Incoherent and Coherent Scatter Radars. These irregularities can in turn affect the performance of satellite communications or GPS navigation signals.
Space Weather Situational Awareness.
Using high-frequency (HF) transceivers, antenna equipment and riometer instruments to study the effects of space weather on long-range high-frequency (HF) communications.

The relations between space weather situational awareness and military operations are explained in this article: Space Weather Situational Awareness and Its Effects upon a Joint, Interagency, Domestic, and Arctic Environment
