I am interested in a variety of solar and stellar physical processes, in particular those that involve magnetic field. My recent research focuses on observing and modeling the solar active region magnetic field, and its role in driving space weather events. Another recent topic involves the cyclic variation of the large-scale heliospheric magnetic field.

I am a team member of the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) project of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which closely monitors our own star and its effects on the Earth. I am a Science Working Group member of the 4-meter Daniel K. Inoue Solar Telescope (DKIST) currently being constructed on Haleakalā. From 2009 to 2012, I worked as a resident observer at the Wilcox Solar Observatory (WSO). For more information, please visit my personal website or see my CV.
