About myself:

Education: Virginia Tech, B.S., Physics, 1990, University of Colorado, M.S. 1994, Ph.D. 1995.

I joined the faculty of the Bradley Department of Electical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech in 2006. I am also affiliated with the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska where I was an assistant professor of physics. I've also worked in the Center for Atmospheric Sciences at Hampton University and have previosly held a research position at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado where I received my PhD.


I am interested in the Earth's upper atmosphere as well as the Sun and how variability in the Sun influences the upper atmosphere. My research activities include participation in NASA satellite and sounding rocket experiments and I am proud to work with some of the best researchers in the field.
