Project Topic: Magnetohydrodynamic waves and oscillations in the solar corona
Observational research into waves in the solar corona. In particular, investigating the nature of prominence oscillations and EUV global waves, also the use of the Hilbert-Huang transform as a method of analysing coronal oscillations such as quasi-periodic pulsations in solar flares.
