Research Interests

My primary interest is on dynamic phenomena of the Sun, with a focus on high-energy aspects of solar flares and coronal mass ejections. My research utilizes a new generation of radio telescopes, including the Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), and the state-of-the-art, solar-dedicated radio telescope: the Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array (EOVSA; operated by our group at NJIT). I am also interested in combining the radio observations with optical/IR, (E)UV, and X-ray data from a variety of instruments (including BBSO, RHESSI, SDO, Hinode, IRIS) to disentangle the complexity involved in the particle energization, plasma heating, and other dynamic physical processes.
