Dr. Anderson has over 30 years experience in space magnetometry and basic research in space plasma physics and planetary magnetic fields. Space flight experience includes AMPTE/CCE, UARS, NEAR, MESSENGER, and MMS with magnetometer instrument scientist responsibilities for NEAR and MESSENGER,and spacecraft magnetics control and mitigation for UARS, NEAR, MESSENGER, and MMS. Dr. Anderson served as Deputy Project Scientist for NASA's MESSENGER mission to Mercury. Basic research includes work on plasma waves, Birkeland currents and magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, and magnetic fields of Mercury and Earth. Dr. Anderson pioneered the application of platform Iridium Constellation magnetometer data for rapid cadence measurement of Earth's Birkeland currents leading to the NSF Geospace Facility, Active Magnetosphere and Planetary Response Experiment (AMPERE) for which Dr. Anderson is the Principal Investigator.
