Research Interests: 
Solar corona; solar wind; MHD, hybrid, and multi-fluid numerical modeling of solar and heliospheric plasma; study of coronal heating and solar wind acceleration physics; waves and instabilities in the solar corona. The use of space-based spectroscopic observations to constrain numerical models. Coronal seismology - the use of waves observed in the corona for inferring coronal parameters.
Candidate's Preferred Background: 
At least one of the following: numerical modeling methods (MHD, kinetic), solar or space plasma physics theory, observational data analysis.
