Current research at VLF Group
Postdoc (#2) at the University of Hawaii
In 2002-2004, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Physics
and Astronomy Department
of the University of Hawaii
Postdoc (#1) at Stanford HEP group
In 2000-2001, I was a postdoctoral student at the
Neutrino Physics Group
at the Physics Department
Ph. D. research at VLF group
Until March 2000 I was a graduate student at the
. I worked in the
, where I studied energetic electrodynamic phenomena associated with thunderstorms.
My advisor was Umran S. Inan
the director of STAR Laboratory
Electrical Engineering Department
Here are LaTeX sources
of some of them.
Maximum entropy method. Slides of a
talk that I gave for an Astrophysics Seminar class.
Introduction to molecular
spectra. Tutorial talk at VLF group colloquium.
Conversion between systems of units
- a self-cooked reference.
Plasma kinetics tutorial. This is a
set of two lectures given by me for Prof. Umran S. Inan's Plasma
Physics course, containing Fokker-Planck equation and spherical
expansion of kinetic equation.
Full-wave method of calculation of e/m field in stratified media. A lecture on the algorithm and applications of the Stanford Full-Wave Method (SFWM) code, given by me for Computational Electromagnetics and Plasma Physics courses.
Magnetohydrodynamics - a short
Error and other related functions - useful in
Bessel functions Jn(x) of integer order
Inheritance pattern in C (with example C code). I am not a computer science specialist so this is a bit outside my comfort zone. However, I have written some code in C for computational scientific models. I found that some object-oriented programming paradigm (OOPP) concepts do not need complicated languages like C++, but may be implemented in a simpler language like C, with the code still remaining to be readable and extensible.

for cold 2-component plasma, with E field polarization.
