Current Research Interests:
Prof. Winglee has extensive experience in space plasma physics and engineering, particularly in relation to the space environments around the planets and advanced space propulsion systems. Significant areas of research include the generation of auroral kilometric radiation, heating of ionospheric ions in the auroral zone, the active injection of beams from spacecraft, reconnection in the magnetotail and magnetopause, ionospheric ion outflows, and planetary magnetospheres, and the development of electrodeless plasma systems for in-space propulsion.
He also continues to work with developing opportunities for students in higher education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through his activities associated with the Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium.
