कार्यक्षेत्र Research Interests:

  • Dynamical coupling of atmospheric regions
  • Electrodynamics of equatorial ionosphere
    Radio and optical remote sensing tools supplemented by ground-based magnetometer data sets are used in the investigation of dynamical and electrodynamical coupling processes operating in the equatorial middle and upper atmosphere. Another study focuses on understanding what lower and upper atmospheric electrical and electrodynamical processes drive the Earth’s giant global electric circuit (GEC) using a variety of ground-based electrical sensors deployed at Tirunelveli and at Maitri, Antarctica.
