Research Interests: 
The long-term build-up to CMEs, the chirality and helicity of solar features individually and collectively; formation of filament channels filaments, filament cavities; the eruption of filaments and prominences, CME initiation and propagation, the source and evolution of solar magnetic fields of all scales. Analysis of multiple wavelengths of data from ground-based and space-based observatories, especially the Dutch Open Telescope (DOT), SOHO, STEREO, and SDO
