Dr. Alexey Tikhomirov

Alexey is a Lidar and Facility Support Scientist with PEARL at Dalhousie University. He completed his B.Sc. in Radiophysics (2001) and M.Sc. in Laser Physics (2003) at Tomsk State University, Russia. He earned his Ph.D. in Optics (2006) from V.E. Zuev Institute of Atmospheric Optics, Russia. His area of expertise is atmospheric optics, spectroscopy, and electronics. He has extensive experience in conducting field research in polar latitudes. Alexey joined CANDAC in 2009. Currently, he is responsible for the Stratospheric Ozone Lidar. The instrument monitors the condition of the ozone layer above Eureka. He is also interested in studying surface-based temperature inversion and near the ground temporal and spatial temperature variations using Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems for characterization of heat fluxes in High Arctic.

Alexey is a co-founder of the Eureka Amateur Radio Club (VY0ERC). He likes to get on the air from PEARL when time permits.
