Michael Peterson

Michael Peterson is a satellite remote sensing scientist with expertise in lightning and atmospheric electricity. He is particularly interested in why lightning flashes look the way they do, and is currently looking for evidence of flash structure in the optical lightning measurements provided by the Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS). He is also interested in data collection with systems-on-a-chip like the Raspberry Pi, using 3D printers to design sensors that can be deployed in the field, and scientific software development.
