Tyler J. Eddy

Undergraduate Class of 2021 - Astrophysics
Senior Thesis

Tyler Eddy is a graduate of the class of 2021 who studied plasma physics, heliophysics, and cosmology. In 2017, he finished a five-year active duty contract in the U.S. Marine Corps where he was a helicopter mechanic and quality assurance representative on UH-1Y Huey and AH-1Z Cobra helicopters. A recently-declared Astrophysical Sciences major, Tyler will join the Space Physics Group this summer as a participant in Astro's Undergraduate Summer Research Program (USRP). 

Tyler will carry on his studies at the Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering at the University of Michigan, as part of their Doctoral studies program.

Junior Projects:

- Ribbon Cutting: Opening the Path to Accelerating Processes Observed by IBEX.

- Key Metrics Necessary for Enhancing Data Analysis in Solar Energetic Particle Events.

Senior Thesis:

Space Physics Laboratory Testing and Calibration Facility Compendium to assist in organizing and managing the group's files, software, and programs.  In addition to using SIMION to create a simulation that models the Ion Beam used for calibrating mission instruments as they pass through the Wien filter, focusing lenses, and vacuum system.  Which also included the influence of the Earth's magnetic field.
