Research Interests: 
- high-resolution observations and numerical modeling of the coupling between the solar photosphere, chromosphere, and corona/solar wind - machine learning techniques aimed at improving diagnostics of solar atmosphere and improving space weather predictions - observations and modeling of irradiance variations (in particular Mg II index) and their effects on Earth's upper atmosphere
Candidate's Preferred Background: 
PhD in heliophysics, with experience in at least one of the following topics: advanced numerical modeling (radiative MHD or multi-fluid codes); high-resolution observations using imaging, or spectroscopy, or spectropolarimetry; machine learning; irradiance studies.
