SCIENTIFIC EXPERIENCE: I studied the physics of electron beams and plasma clouds injected from rockets and the Space Shuttle while at Standord University and University of Michigan (1984-1994). I developed a 3D particle-in-cell code with Professor Oscar Buneman, which we used to simulate electron beam and cloud injections. When I returned to Denmark, I worked in the Ørsted project at the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) - as the Project Scientists when Eigil Friis-Christensen left DMI. With Ørsted data I studied small-scale, field-aligned, electric currents in the upper atmosphere. While at DMI I expanded into the field of electrical discharges in the upper atmosphere powered by thunderstorms below.  At DTU Space we study lightning and high-altitude discharges using a number of codes developed by Olivier Chanrion and conducting optical observations from Observatoire Midi Pyrénées and other locations. The high-altitude discharges are the Sprites, Jets and Gigantic Jets. Our big space project is the ASIM payload for the Internationa Space Station (Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor). It will study Lightning, Sprites, Jets, Gigantic jets and the so-called Terestrial Gamma-ray Flashes.
