Rashmi Siddalingappa is currently involved in three exciting research projects, each focusing on different aspects of space and atmospheric phenomena:
NSF ANSWERS Project - Ion-Neutral Coupling Model: In this project, the main goal is to develop a novel model for ion-neutral coupling in the ionosphere-thermosphere system. This is essential for accurate space weather modeling and prediction. To achieve this, we are conducting first-of-its-kind multi-species, multi-fluid laboratory experiments. We use Design of Experiments (DoE) to identify driving conditions and simulate the Geospace environment.
ARMAS Dataset Analysis - Radiation Dose Rate Prediction: This research involves analyzing the ARMAS dataset to predict radiation dose rates at aviation altitudes.
Extreme Space Weather Study - Solar Wind Predictive Models: In this project, the aim is to develop predictive models for extreme solar wind parameters and investigate the behavior of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere system under extreme conditions. We employ machine learning regression models and superposed epoch analysis using the SEA dataset comprising solar wind and interplanetary magnetic field measurements.
