Elizabeth Ann Tolman studies a wide range of problems in plasma physics. Currently, she is particularly interested in reconnection in weakly ionized astrophysical plasmas and in wave generation and propagation in pulsar magnetospheres. She has also studied fusion plasmas and the energetic particle-driven instabilities they experience.
