Main Research Fields

My main functional role at ESA is Mission Manager/Project Scientist for SOHO. I am also ESA Project Scientist for Hinode. My scientific interests include the dynamics of the solar atmosphere, in particular wave propagation characteristics in the chromosphere. I work with data from SOHO, TRACE, Hinode, and ground-based observatories.
