St Andrews University (Yes)
Particle acceleration in Collapsing Magnetic Traps. (Theory)
David Kuridze
Queen's University Belfast (No)
My research interests include plasma astrophysics and solar physics in general. In particular, small-scale chromospheric plasma jets, their dynamic and formation mechanisms. My research covers theoretical (analytical) modelling of mentioned processes and analyses of solar observational data. (Data)

University of St Andrews (Yes)
Investigation into what role thermal conduction has on the damping and propagation of MHD waves. Also what effect it has on the heat produced by phase mixing Alfven waves. (Theory)

Jonathan O'Regan
Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London (Yes)
The influence of Solar energetic particles (and their interactions with Earth's magnetic field) on ion-mediated atmospheric processes, primarily cloud nucleation via Cloud Condensation Nuclei generation and/or modification, and lightning generation via charge accumulation in clouds. (Data)

I am working on modelling particle acceleration in turbulent magnetic fields, with particular applications to reconnection regions in the solar corona. (Theory)
Ewan Dickson
University of Glasgow (Yes)
RHESSI data analysis using regularised inversion to estimate the anisotropy in solar flare electron spectra. Monte Carlo simulations of electron pitch angle scattering. (Data)
Sophie Murray
Trinity College Dublin (No)
My work focuses on active region magnetic field evolution. I use data from Hinode SOT/SP and SDO/HMI to examine small-scale changes in the field leading up to and after solar flares. I specifically look at vector magnetic field changes (e.g. vertical and horizontal field strength, inclination angle, azimuthal angle), as well as the 3D topology. Changes before the flare can be useful for flare prediction, and changes during the course of the flare help test the validity of currently proposed changes in magnetic topology during solar flares.
