I am working on a PhD in Solar Physics with Dr. Lyndsay Fletcher and I am currently busy with automated feature detection in solar images making use of image processing techniques. At the moment, my research involves looking at the fragmentation and breakup of solar active regions by studying MDI magnetograms I am also actively involved with the Astro group outreach program and had an active role in planetarium shows in schools as part of the Constellation Project with Professor John Brown. This was a project to promote Astronomy during IYA2009.
