We are the Lightning Group in the Geospace Physics Laboratory (GPL) in the Department of Physics and Space Sciences at the Florida Institute of Technology. We are interested in understanding the underlying physics of lightning discharges. Or research includes theoretical, observational and experimental studies of runaway breakdown, x-ray emission from thunderstorms and lightning, and terrestrial gamma-ray flashes.
