Short bio: John Lyon has had an extensive career in compuatioanl plasma physics, most notably in the development of the LFM global magnetospheric MHD code, the precursor to GAMERA. He is currently working on ionospheric outflow problems as well as extensions to MHD physics, such as Hall MHD in the magnetospheric context.
