Mykhaylo Shumko, Ph.D.
Dr. Mykhaylo (Mike) Shumko became a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow at Goddard Space Flight Center after he graduated from Montana State University in 2019. His research is mainly focused on atmospheric particle precipitation observed directly by low Earth orbiting satellites and from the ground by all-sky imagers. He worked closely with the FIREBIRD-II CubeSat team and commanded them for many years. He is currently developing the GTOsat CubeSat, and working on data analysis techniques to combine auroral and in-situ particle measurements to understand under what conditions the low- and high-energy particle dynamics are linked.
