  • Brief Bio

    Natalia Buzulukova graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) in 1997 with a degree in applied physics and mathematics. As a postgraduate student she studied nanotubes and fullerens in Moscow Institute of Biochemical Physics (1997-1998). In 1998, she moved to the Moscow Space Research Institute and started to work in the field of plasma physics and data analysis under supervision of  Yuri Galperin. She obtained a PhD degree in 2003.  In 2003-2007, she held postdoctoral position  in Moscow Space Research Institute (IKI). In 2005, she got a fellowship from President Grant for Government Support of Young Russian Scientists of the Russian Federation. In May 2007, she was appointed the NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) and moved to NASA GSFC.  At NASA GSFC, she began to work with models of the Earth ring current/plasmasphere and data analysis  under supervision of Dr. M.-C. Fok and Dr. T. E. Moore. In 2008, she joined TWINS team where she extensively worked on modeling and interpretation of energetic atom emissions from ring current and precipitating ions. Currently Dr. Buzulukova continues to work at GSFC/UMCP on modeling of the Earth magnetosphere, adopting different approaches such as MHD, ring current models and PIC simulations through wide collaborations with researchers from different universities and research centers.
