Research Interests: 
I am primarily interested in modeling and observation of dynamic coronal phenomena, including solar flares and coronal mass ejections. My research thus far has focused on modeling the soft X-ray and EUV emission due to heating and cooling processes present in solar flares and comparing these models to observations of flare evolution. I am interested in using a variety of instruments to inform these models, including imaging telescopes such as the Transition Region and Coronal Explorer (TRACE), the Soft X-ray Telescope on Yohkoh, the X-Ray Telescope on Hinode and the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly on SDO.
Candidate's Preferred Background: 
Image analysis techniques, familiarity with coronal imaging data.
