Morris B. Cohen has been named president-elect of the Atmospheric and Space Electricity Section (ASE) of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). Cohen is an associate professor in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). 

As president-elect, Cohen will serve a two-year term, to be followed by two years as section President, and serves on AGU's governing council for those four years.

The AGU has 60,000 members in 137 countries, covering all aspects of geoscience on Earth and in space. The AGU's annual meeting draws about 25,000 attendees. ASE is one of 25 sections of AGU, focusing on the physics and global impacts of lightning, electrodynamic processes coupling lightning and thunderstorms, the ionosphere, and the near-Earth space environment, all observed on the ground, in the air, and from satellites. 

A member of the ECE faculty since 2013, Cohen leads the Low Frequency Radio Group. He is a recipient of the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award and the National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Cohen is also a past recipient of the Santimay Basu Prize, an award given by the International Union of Radio Science (URSI).

Cohen’s research area is the use of the low frequency radio spectrum for a range of scientific and engineering problems, including upper atmospheric geoscience, space weather, physics of lightning, underground remote sensing, radio detection through conductors, long range communications, global navigation, and power grid diagnostics.
