Research Interests
I have years of field work experience in geomagnetic observations (since 1999), including instrumentation design, field deployment (7 visits to Antarctica, 16 months at Zhongshan Station), and operations. My research is strongly tied with space weather, including geomagnetic storms, ULF pulsation indices, and Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GICs). Also, my work involves heavily with data processing and statistical analysis, especially in wavelet analysis.
