Research interests

My research is primarily concerned with the mathematical modelling of physics of

  • solar/space plasmas;
  • sun-solar wind;
  • solar-terrestrial systems.

The study of processes occurring in such systems is crucially important for understanding the Sun, predicting Space Weather and understanding the dynamics of laboratory and technological plasmas. This includes mathematical modelling of solar magnetic flux tubes and processes that heat and maintain the coronal plasma at multi-million degree temperatures; studying fundamental plasma processes such as waves and instabilities in inhomogeneous media; determining the physical parameters of solar magnetic structures.

For online simulations of Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability, Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability with a magnetic field, Orszag-Tang Vortex, MHD Waves propagation in the Realistic solar atmosphere and Validation of MHD Code for Gravitationally Stratified Media on Graphical Processing Units see simulations.
