Kristina A. Lynch
Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Kristina Lynch is an experimental physicist specializing in the plasma physics of the auroral ionosphere. She has been at Dartmouth College since 2002. Her undergraduate degree was from Washington University in St Louis (1984). After this she spent four years at the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory in Massachusetts, working on the CRRES satellite. She did her graduate work at the University of New Hampshire (PhD in 1992) working on auroral sounding rockets. From 1992 to 2002 she worked at the UNH Space Science Center on sounding rockets and the European Cluster satellite project. She is a member of the American Geophysical Union.
