Evan Tyler won the 2017 Leonard F. Burlaga/Arctowski Medal Fellowship. Tyler moved around a lot growing up: North Carolina, New Mexico, Germany, and Virginia. He plans to use the fellowship to attend the Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) conference and the Solar Heliospheric & INterplanetary Environment (SHINE) conference in order to present two of his research projects. Tyler will also be working on preparing this research during the Summer, as well as continuing his work as the Outreach Coordinator for MIfA.

Tyler's research focus is on reconnection in the magnetotail and on high-amplitude whistler waves in the magnetosphere, using in-situ satellite measurements to study energy flows and particle dynamics in these events.
