I’m an electrical engineer. But, my work is in remote sensing of atmospheric and space physics phenomena—aeronomy—the naming and measurement of atmospheres. I use sensitive imaging systems, HF and VHF radars, and satellites to advance our understanding of irregularities in the ionosphere that disrupt mission-critical communication (UHF-SATCOM), navigation (GPS/GNSS), and time-transfer systems (GPS). In practice, this means that I do everything from building optical and RF instruments to writing low-level software to analyzing and presenting data (80% of my time) to taking interesting trips to collect data on-site. I’m an EE short-order cook. I also have considerable experience with RF and microwave electronics and material characterization, which is a problem well-related to aeronomy.
