Professor, Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering
Center for Space Environment Modeling
His research interests focus on understanding the physical processes controlling energetic charged particle motion in planetary magnetospheres, including Earth. He writes and uses space plasma physics numerical models, especially kinetic modeling that resolves velocity space distributions but also large-scale magnetohydrodynamic models. Prof. Liemohn is especially interested in the nonlinear coupling within planetary magnetospheres during strong solar wind driving intervals (i.e., system-level feedback during space storms).
