    Summary

    Candidate has almost 15 years of experience in computational physics and numerical techniques applied to astrophysics and space physics problems. He has developed data assimilation techniques for heliophysics and inner magnetospheric research. He invented a new method of calculating radiation belt drift shells using a neural network technique. The new method is several orders of magnitude faster and has been submitted to the U.S. Patent Office. The applicant is leading the IMPACT project (Integrated Modeling of Perturbations in Atmospheres for Conjunction Tracking) which the goal to develop a physics based upper atmosphere model for satellite drag calculations. The candidate is also leading the data assimilation effort for the DREAM project. He is PI on several NSF and NASA funded project to advance radiation belt forecast models. The candidate has authored and co-authored over 50 scientific publications and served on several review committees for NSF, NASA, LDRD, and the Canadian Space Agency. He has organized and chaired sessions at international conferences including the American Geophysical Union and is currently serving as editor for the Journal of Geoscientific Model Development. He established and is directing the Los Alamos Space Weather Summer School to bring highly qualified graduate students to Los Alamos.
