Research Interests

My main interest is magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), particularly the structure and evolution of the Sun's magnetic field. I focus on problems which are nonlinear, three-dimensional, time-dependent, or all three. I apply a mixture of numerical and analytical modelling.

If you are interested in studying for a PhD in MHD, see my list of possible topics.
