Dr Alexander Russell

Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Research Fellow

I am investigating whether MHD waves can transport large amounts of energy from the solar corona to the chromosphere during solar flares, and possible mechanisms by which these waves might accelerate electrons to high energies. I am especially keen to exploit parallels with auroral physics, building bridges between solar and magnetospheric physics. My work is supported by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.
