Oddbjørn Engvold is an emeritus professor at RoCS. One of his main areas of research is structure and dynamics of solar prominences.  He is a veteran user of the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope on the island of La Palma and of solar telescopes of the US National Solar Observatory (NSO). He has in recent years edited and contributed to two books related to solar activity.
