Research interests

My broad topic of interest is the Sun and Heliosphere in the domain of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations. Currently, I am exploring the impact of flux emergence on the chromosphere using radiative-MHD modeling. I am also interested in solar dynamos and surface flux transport modeling.
