My research interests span atmospheric and space sciences, geophysics, and plasma physics. Lately I’ve been interested in atmospheric and space electricity; thunderstorms and its effects in the near-Earth space environment; lightning physics; modeling of electrical discharge plasmas; waves in space plasmas; and development of computer-based tools for analysis of atmospheric and geophysical phenomena.
