Characterizing the dynamics of the Earth's Ionosphere


Born in Mumbwa, Zambia in the mid/late 70's. Completed high school at Mumbwa Secondary School in 1996. Studied Physics at the University of Zambia until 2003 and obtained the bachelor of Science degree. Received bachelor of Science degree with honors in Astrophysics and space sciences from the University of Capetown in 2004. Enrolled for a Master of Science program in space science at The University of Capetown and completed the coursework for the same in June 2005 then moved to Rhodes University to do the research part of the program and completed this in June 2006.
