Research

I study sound waves on the Sun and how they interact within the Sun's atmosphere. Our Sun reverberates like a drum and so it causes the production of these sound waves. These sound waves could be an answer the to why the Sun's corona is so incredibly hot. Currently, I am studying how these sound waves are interacting with massive explosions on the Sun's surface known as solar flares.

Goals

Right now with such an uncertain future, I have an adaptive attitude. I would like to continue working in research, but I also have a broad view and would just like a job after I graduate.
