Academic interests

  • Magnetohydrodynamic simulations of the solar corona, with a focus on magnetic reconnections and high energetic phenomena like solar flares and coronal mass ejections.
  • Magnetic field extrapolations using numerical models of non-force-free/nonlinear-force-free magnetic fields and their applications to  spectro-polarimetric data from solar photosphere and chromosphere.
  • Topological and statistical properties of coronal fields derived from magnetic field extrapolations, with focus on magnetic braiding, magnetic helicity, properties of magnetic null points and formation of current sheets.
