Academic Interests

My sphere of interest is modelling of the HF radio wave propagation in the ionosphere; ionograms simulation of vertical and oblique sounding; sudden stratospheric warming ionospheric response, ionospheric irregularities, geomagnetic storms and their effects on the ionosphere and HF radio wave propagation and absorption signal; ionosphere observations by ionosondes, correction of the ionospheric model using ground-based GNSS receivers, GPS phase and amplitude scintillation; ionospheric irregularities and their influence on radio signals; high-latitude and polar ionosphere, interhemispheric symmetry and asymmetry.
