Dr. Phillip A. Webb
Science Consultant/Operations - Interim INSPIRE President
Dr. Webb is an Assistant Research Scientist at the GEST research center, University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) within the Laboratory for Solar and Space Physics, NASA/Goddard Space flight Center in Greenbelt , Maryland. He obtained his B.Sc. in 1993 and M.Sc. (1st Class Honours) in 1995 from The University of Auckland, New Zealand, and his Ph.D. in 2001 from La Trobe University, Australia. At NASA/GSFC he has undertaken studies to interpret data collected by the Radio Plasma Imager ( RPI ) on NASA's IMAGE satellite. As principle investigator he recently won a NASA New Investigator Program (NIP) 3-year award to automate electron density determinations from RPI passive observations. Dr Webb has undertaken research into modeling topside ionospheric ion composition and modeling nanometre sized ice particles believed to play an important role in the formation of polar mesospheric summer echoes (PMSE). He has published 17 scientific publications dealing with ionospheric, plasmaspheric, and mesospheric physics. He has also presented 65 talks and posters on these topics.
|The INSPIRE Project, Inc is a non-profit scientific educational corporation that provides engaging opportunities for students
to observe naturally occurred Very Low Frequency (VLF) waves generated by lightning and in the process gain hands-on, real world experience in science and electronics. It seeks to enhance educators knowledge of atmospheric and space science
to encourage our next generation of scientists. INSPIRE’s educational platform serves a wide range of science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM) topics and programs.
