Michael Hartinger

Affiliate Research Scientist
Newport News, VA

Mike studies Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) waves and other phenomena related to solar-wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling - how energy flows between the Sun and different regions in the near-Earth space environment. He received his Bachelor's in Physics from Cornell University in 2006, and PhD in Geophysics and Space Physics from UCLA in 2012. His recent research focuses on wave-particle interactions in the Earth's radiation belts and north-south hemisphere asymmetries in the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere system, and he currently co-manages an array of autonomous instruments in Antarctica.
