I am a Solar Physicist at the National Solar Observatory (NSO) in Boulder, Colorado. My research primarily explores highly explosive events on the Sun known as Solar Flares. I use telescopes on the ground and in space to investigate these processes, and the rapid release of energy within them.
I am also very active in science communication, and work routinely with museums and schools to promote science to future generations of scientists. My first book, 'The Sun: beginner's guide to our local star', was published in the UK/EU in May 2023, with global publication later this year.
