About me

I am a professor at Queen's University Belfast, with my main research interests concerning the underlying physics of cool stars and the Sun. I utilize high-resolution data sets of the lower solar atmosphere, obtained in optical wavelengths using world-leading solar facilities such as the Dunn Solar Telescope and the Swedish Solar Telescope. I am predominantly interested in how the Sun's energy travels through its atmosphere, both in the form of flares and waves. In order to push the boundaries of spatial and temporal resolutions, I have designed and successfully commissioned my own pet project: the Rapid Oscillations in the Solar Atmosphere (ROSA) multi-camera system.

The Solar Physics group at Queen's University has enjoyed considerable media interest over the last few years. A small collection of press-related items can be found on the webpages of David Jess.

During my time at QUB, I have also been the primary advisor many successful PhD students, including:

  • Dr. David Williams (Instrument Operations Scientist for the Solar Orbiter)
  • Dr. James McAteer (Associate Professor@ New Mexico State University)
  • Dr. Marco Matranga (Research Fellow @ Università di Palermo)
  • Dr. Shaun Bloomfield]] (Reader @ Northumbria University )
  • Dr. Ryan Milligan (STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellos @ University of Glasgow)
  • Dr. David Jess (STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellow & lecturer @ QUB)
  • Dr. Philip Crockett (now @Thales)
  • Dr. Peter Keys (Leverhulme Early Career Fellow @ QUB)
  • Dr. David Kuridze (PDRA @ QUB)
  • Dr. Michael Kennedy (Scholar in US/NI mentoring scheme)
  • Dr. Rebecca Hewitt (Science Teacher)
  • Dr. Aaron Reid (PDRA @ QUB)
  • Ondrej Prochazka (2nd year PhD)
