Professor Lyon is a member of the CISM research team. His primary research interests include space plasma physics and magnetospheric physics; numerical simulation and computational physics. He divides his time between Boston University and Dartmouth University, where he is a full-time faculty member. As a member of the CISM research team, Professor Lyon works with Mary K. Hudson and other professors at Dartmouth on 3D global magneto- hydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of the solar wind interacting with the earth's magnetosphere, and hybrid simulations on a finer scale of processes associated with the flow of the solar wind around the magnetosphere.
