About

I am a PhD student working with the Solar Physics and Space Plasma Research Centre at the University of Sheffield, researching the key role that magnetohydrodynamic waves play in the solar corona (Sun's upper atmosphere). The buildup of magnetic energy in the volatile solar atmosphere leads to the ejection of vast amounts of solar material into space, occasionally hitting Earth. Solar observations tell us that these ejections drive ripples across the surface of the Sun. My research will give us key information about these waves and therefore about the structure of the Solar atmosphere, which gives us the ability forecast and mitigate catastrophic coronal mass ejections that can cause large-scale power disruption (e.g. March 1989 geomagnetic storm, Quebec, Canada).
