Cassak elected chair of Geospace Environment Modeling

Paul Cassak, associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, has been chosen as the chair-elect of Geospace Environment Modeling.

Geospace Environment Modeling is a community-initiated research program studying the physics of the Earth’s magnetosphere and the coupling of the magnetosphere to the atmosphere and to the solar wind. Their research is important for the prediction of space weather.

Cassak will serve as vice chair from 2017-19 and chair from 2019-21. As chair, Cassak would like to increase collaboration between Geospace Environment Modeling and its subfields. He also wants to enhance outreach opportunities by going into communities and teaching the public about their research.
