    Research Interests

    VLBI Analysis

    As member of the IVS Working Group 3, he used simulations to determine the specifications for the next generation VLBI2010 antennas. He applied Monte-Carlo simulations with  realistic models of clock drifts and atmospheric turbulence to determine realistic error sources in VLBI. He was a major contributor to the development of the 2nd Realization of the International Celestial Reference Frame by Very Long Baseline Interferometry recently adopted by the International Astronomical Union. He has been responsible for improvements in VLBI tropospheric delay modeling. Additionally he has investigated many other systematic errors in VLBI measurements including extragalactic radio source apparent proper motion, atmospheric pressure loading, ocean loading, hydrology loading, antenna feed polarization leakage, and antenna thermal deformation. He demonstrated the importance of modeling the azimuthal dependence of tropospheric delay in geodetic analysis and in the determination of the terrestrial and celestial reference frames from VLBI measurements. He directs the task on improving the VLBI analysis technique. He was a principal investigator on the Jason altimeter science working team. This work consists of using GPS and VLBI tropospheric delay estimates to calibrate altimeter microwave radiometer drifts. He has analyzed effects of multipath signal scattering on GPS measurements and tested methods of mitigating the problem.
