I am a scientist at the High Altitude Observatory (HAO), National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Boulder, Colorado. I received a B.Sc. in Space Physics from Peking University, China, in 1989, and a Ph.D in Astronomy from the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii in 1993. I did my postdoctoral research at the National Solar Observatory in Tucson, and at the Joint Institute of Laboratory Astrophysics, University of Colorado at Boulder. I joined the scientific staff of HAO/NCAR in 1998. Here is a copy of my CV and publication list.

Research interests : solar and astrophysical magneto-hydrodynamics; dynamics of rising magnetic flux tubes in the solar interior; physics of solar active region formation; interaction of solar p-modes with active region magnetic flux tubes; helioseismology;

Current Research Topics:

  • Subsurface evolution of active region flux tubes
  • Emergence of twisted magnetic flux tubes into the solar atmosphere
  • CME initiation, evolution and interplanetary consequences
