Research and Teaching Interests

Developed and used the 3-D global hybrid model (Angie3D) to investigate the plasma kinetic processes at the bow shock and the magnetosphere, as well as, their interactions with interplanetary discontinuities. Developed and used the general curvilinear particle in cell (GCPIC) code to simulate the excitation of fast magnetosonic waves, chorus waves, and emic waves in the Earth's inner magnetosphere. Developed and used a gyrokinetic electron and fully kinetic ion (GeFi) particle simulation code to simulate the collisionless reconnection and lower-hybrid wave physics.
