I am a Research Professor in the Solar
Physics Group at Montana State University. My work
focuses on observations and analysis of solar flares
and the structures which produce them; the behavior
of magnetic fields during flares; and the heating of
stellar coronae. For these studies, I primarily use
ultraviolet and X-ray observations from telescopes
orbiting the Earth. I have worked with graduate students
and other faculty at MSU, and partners at other
institutions, to operate a number of space-borne solar
telescopes and to analyze the data that these telescopes produce.
I'm also involved in
education & public outreach projects related to
solar and space science.
