Graduate Student working under Dr. McPherron in the UCLA Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, Space Weather Group.

Research Interest: Substorm dynamic processes.

Current Project: A database containing almost a thousand substorm onsets during the IGY era has been established. This ground onset database is used to examine the tail magnetic and plasma features associated with substorm onsets. The present focus of our study is to investigate the influence of sudden changes of the IMF on the substorm process. We are especially interested in whether a northward turning of IMF can trigger a substorm onset. Also, we plan to run a MHD simulation to investigate the hypothesis of IMF triggering.
