Kevin B. Quest
Professor/Vice Chair, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Collisionless shock structure, magnetic reconnection, and plasma waves and instabilities Professor Quest's research interests include theoretical space plasma physics and numerical methods, as well as the development and use of large-scale numerical simulation codes that assist in the study of the complex nonlinear behavior of space plasmas. His publications include a study of "Microphysics of the Venusian and Martian mantles," and a report on "Interaction of the Solar Wind with Unmagnetized Planets: Two-Dimensional Particle Simulations."In Spring 2002, Quest taught ECE's Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering.
