Dr. Eric Kihn is a long time employee of the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) in Boulder. Eric first began with NGDC in 1989 as a student assistant and joined as a Professional Research Associate with the University of Colorado Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) later that year. Since joining NGDC as a federal employee in 1991 he has served at many levels in the organization including physical scientist, group leader, then Deputy Director, and currently serves as Acting Director.

In addition to numerous papers in the space weather arena, Eric's research interests led to the development of the Space Weather Analysis (SWA) a 15 year look at the space environment though data-assimilative models. Eric Kihn is the lead developer of the Space Physics Interactive Data Resource (SPIDR) and Environmental Scenario Generator (ESG) systems for which he received DOC silver medals in 1994 and 1997.
