Professor Hirsch uses comprehensive model-based engineering frameworks to turn an idea into a product. Broad engineering expertise combined with years of experience bring quick resolve to vexing system issues for geospace/geoscience research as well as corporate and government entities.
As a governmental example, we work with public safety and transportation entities on their wireless infrastructure, whether in modeling upgrades, solving coverage problems or helping write RFPs and reviewing responses. As an independent voice of experience, Michael helps police, fire, EMS, transit and other public agencies as they maintain and transition from legacy analog radio and data systems to broadband digital networks, including FirstNet. We work with agricultural operations from farmers to companies working with and for agricultural advancement as humankind struggles to feed more with less.

advised by Joshua Semeter with the Boston University Center for Space Physics, where Michael developed novel ionospheric remote sensing system techniques via optical tomography, radar, and radio instruments. The kickoff to Michael’s doctoral research was an AFOSR-funded deployment to Greenland on multiscale (temporal and spatial) features in the aurora. The lessons learned from this system built confidence in the field deployment of a two-camera auroral tomography system to the Poker Flat Research Range near Fairbanks, Alaska. The next generation three-station system with ancillary receivers is nearing deployment, built by the Boston University Science Instrumentation Facility team including Glenn Thayer and Heitor Mourato.
Michael earned the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree from Boston University in the Space Physics: Remote Sensing & Instrumentation track.
