Research expertise

My research concerns the simulation of the magnetohydrodynamics of the solar corona. Over the long term, my goal is to be able to predict, at least 12 hours in advance, whether an active region will produce a flare and by what physical process.

We need to reconstruct the convection zone located beneath an active region but also the chromosphere and the photosphere, and to assimilate the available satellite date in models.

Lastly, I am also interested in turbulent thermal convection. For these studies I use parallel computers.
