Research interests

 

Ivan Astin gained a BSc in mathematics at the University of Nottingham, before completing a PhD in ionospheric physics at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth. After these, he was a postdoctoral research associate at NERC's Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) radar facility, near Aberystwyth. Following that, he was a research fellow, and later senior research fellow, at the University of Reading's NERC environmental systems science centre, where he worked on active remote sensing of the atmosphere and oceans. During this time he spent a year as a visiting academic within the department of atmospheric sciences at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He joined the University of Bath as a lecturer in 2004 and was subsequently promoted to senior lecturer. His research interests lie in the remote sensing of the atmosphere and ionosphere using radio signals.
