Antti Pulkkinen is currently Associate Professor at the Catholic University of America and Associate Director of the Institute for Astrophysics and Computational Sciences. He has a PhD degree in theoretical physics (2003, University of Helsinki). Subsequently he joined the nonlinear dynamics group at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center to carry out his postdoctoral research during years 2004–2006. Dr. Pulkkinen's dissertation and postdoctoral research involved studies on both ground effects of space weather and complex nonlinear dynamics of the magnetosphere-ionosphere system. Dr. Pulkkinen has been both leading and participating in numerous space weather-related projects where scientists have been in close collaboration with industrial partners. In most of these projects, his work has involved general geomagnetic induction modeling and modeling of space weather effects on pipelines and power transmission systems. Recently Dr. Pulkkinen has been working on utilizing the established modeling capabilities in operational nowcasting and forecasting of general space weather. He is the main or co-author of more than 50 peer-reviewed scientific articles.
