I am a Carnegie Trust PhD student, working with Professor Lyndsay Fletcher and studying oscillations in the Sun’s atmosphere, with particular focus on the chromosphere. I use mostly ground based imagindavidg spectro-polarimetry in conjunction with space based data to look for evidence of oscillations and pulsations during solar flare activity. I am also interested in chromospheric waves and oscillations in quiet conditions, such as sunspot oscillations.

I am working with Dr Nicolas Labrosse. My research is mainly concerned with solar prominences in the near ultraviolet wavelengths. I am currently working with MgII spectra from IRIS and using synthesised line profiles from NLTE code(s) to attempt to invert the atmosphere.

I am working with Prof. Lyndsay Fletcher on the implementation of machine learning algorithms in solar observations. My main focus is on flare spectropolarimetry and how machine learning techniques can aid the data analysis process for carrying out chromospheric magnetic field diagnostics in a flaring atmosphere.

I have mainly applied supervised and unsupervised deep learning models to different solar aspects:

1. Deep convolutional neural network (CNN) for solar feature detection

2. Deep learning for correcting for atmospheric seeing in solar flare observations.

3. Invertible neural network (INN) for the inversion of solar flare line profiles.

A C.V. can be found here.
