Tuija Pulkkinen & Research Group

Our research focuses on physics of the Solar-Terrestrial interactions using space-borne measurements together with the Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF) global geospace simulations.

I am a professor at the Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering, and currently also the department chair. I joined the University of Michigan in 2018, attracted by the versatile research program in the department covering climate and space sciences, space instrument development and operations, data analysis and world-leading space environment modeling.

I came to Michigan from Finland (located in Northern Europe), where I worked at Aalto University and prior to that at the Finnish Meteorological Institute

Our research group works in collaboration with our local colleagues at the University of Michigan, but also interacts with leading groups in the US, in Finland, and elsewhere in the world.
