The Solar Physics Research Group at Rice University uses computational modeling and observational tools to explore a variety of topics in solar and space plasma physics. Our current research projects range from forward modeling of nanoflare-heated solar active regions to magnetic interactions between stars and planets. We are housed within the Department of Physics and Astronomy and located primarily in Herman Brown Hall for Mathematical Sciences.
Will attended the 2018 SDO Science Workshop in Ghent, Belgium and gave a talk entitled “Understanding Heating Properties of Active Region Loops through Forward Modelingand Machine Learning”. More information about the workshop can be found here.
Reva Mandage recently defended her Master’s research on forward modeling of solar flare spectra and was awarded PhD candidacy. Congratulations Reva!
Alison Farrish recently defended her Master’s research on explanet host star magnetic activity and was awarded PhD candidacy. Congratulations Alison!
