Timothy Duly will receive the 2015 Basu United States Early Career Award for Research Excellence in Sun-Earth Systems Science at the 2015 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, to be held 14–18 December in San Francisco, Calif. This award is given annually to one early-career scientist (no more than 3 years postdegree) from the United States in recognition of significant work that shows the focus and promise of making outstanding contributions to research in Sun-Earth systems science that further the understanding of both plasma physical processes and their applications for the benefit of society.
Timothy received his B.S. in electrical engineering from the Ohio State University in 2009 and a M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011 and 2014, respectively, under the supervision of Jonathan Makela. He is currently a research engineer at Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates (ASTRA) in Boulder, Colo. His research interests include measuring and modeling traveling ionospheric disturbances and understanding their impact on radio frequency systems.
