Secondary Advisor: Sunil Bisnath

Junchan Lee is postdoc of GNSS lab for Dr. Sunil Bisnath and nanosatellite research lab for Dr. Regina Leein York university. He arrived at Toronto in December 2017 and has been working with the nanosatellite group since then. He completed his Ph.D course in Physics at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology(KAIST) in Korea with the dissertation title of “Development of ionosphere plasma diagnostics and their applications” which describe three kinds of plasma diagnosis installed on the Korea microsatellite with named of NEXTSat-1 in order to measure the ionospheric plasma properties such as electron density, ion temperature and composition etc. He is doing research on GNSS Reflectometry which is the remote sensing method by using reflected electromagnetic signals transmitted from GNSS satellite off surface of the Earth. His idea will be demonstrated as GNSS Reflectometry receiver for nanosatellite, and as a preliminary study, he is working on soil moisture model by using CYGNSS data which is constellation of 8 satellites launched in 2017 to forecast hurricane.
